OMA-designed Maggie’s is open in Glasgow
October 6, 2011

OMA Rem Koolhaas Maggie’s Centre Gartnavel GlasgowOMA and the Maggie’s charity open a new centre on the grounds of Gartnaval Royal Infirmary in Glasgow. Maggie’s is designed to provide emotional and psychological support to those affected by cancer in the greater Glasgow area.
A ring of loosely arranged interconnecting spaces contains counselling rooms, a large multipurpose space, a kitchen, dining room and offices. By avoiding a familiar configuration of insular rooms, the fluent spatial sequence at Maggie’s Gartnaval fosters the sense of empathetic community central to the Maggie’s philosophy. Lily Jencks, the daughter of Maggie’s founders Charles Jencks and Maggie Keswick Jencks, designed the landscaping for the internal courtyard and the surrounding wooded knoll. Construction of Maggie’s was completed in under a year, and was funded by the sponsorship of the thousands who participated in sponsored Walk the Walk events.
