Maggie’s at the Velindre Cancer Centre, Cardiff

Working in partnership with the Velindre Cancer Centre, the new Maggie’s Centre will significantly enhance the cancer support already offered to the 1.5million people treated at the Centre from Cardiff, Newport and beyond. Patients will be able to access Maggie’s evidence-based programme of free practical, emotional and social support, which has been developed to complement medical treatment and includes drop-in sessions with cancer support specialists, benefits advice, nutrition workshops and relaxation classes.

To complement Dow Jones Architects design, the surrounding gardens have been designed by RHS Gold Medallist Cleve West, who has built a reputation for innovative garden landscapes; his creative use of space and harmonious planting puts him at the forefront of contemporary garden design in the UK. The building and the landscape will have an intimate relationship, with the different rooms grouped around a central courtyard and opening into woodland gardens with spaces to grow food and walk among the trees.
