RIBA Stirling shortlist 2012 – Maggie’s Centre, Glasgow
Glasgow’s new Maggie’s Centre, like its sister projects, sets out to provide space where people can feel welcome, at home and cared for; a haven.
The architect has sited the building on a slight rise, but cleverly cut it into the slope so that on two sides it looks at banked landscape.
It is mostly surrounded by fairly dense tree planting, like a large cabin in the woods.
