Dow Jones Architects has designed a Maggie's Centre in Cardiff, which features a series of angular roofs clad in weathering steel.
Maggie’s Cardiff makes a connection between the local topography and the industrial past of south Wales by using everyday local materials in a thoughtful and creative manner.
The building is located in a corner of the hospital car park, and is entered via a small courtyard garden that removes you from the bleakness of the situation.
The interior is calm, timber-lined and filled with natural light. The plan is organised to take you on a journey from the courtyard garden back to nature by framing the existing stand of trees that sit behind the building.
