Maggie’s, Oldham

Value: £1.7 million

Maggie’s, Oldham is a cancer care centre situated within the grounds of The Royal Oldham Hospital.  The award-winning facility seeks to provide ‘the architecture of hope’. The building sits on six slender stilts which allows the building to hover over a garden which offers ‘open air rooms’ framed by pine and birch trees.

This project is the world’s first permanent building constructed entirely of hardwood cross-laminated timber (CLT) and the scheme has provided a pivotal moment for modern construction and innovation.
