Wilkinson Eyre lands planning approval for Oxford Maggie's Centre

  • Comment

Wilkinson Eyre’s ‘treehouse’ style design for the Oxford Maggie’s Centre has won planning approval

The timber and glass building will be located in the grounds of the city’s Churchill Hospital and work will begin on site early next year (2010).

The Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centre will serve thousands of people affected by cancer across the region. The nationwide centres, the vision of Maggie Keswick Jencks who died of cancer in 1996, have been designed by a series of leading architects such as Zaha Hadid and Frank Gehry.

Chris Wilkinson co-founder of Wilkinson Eyre said: ‘We are thrilled that the Centre has now received planning permission.

‘Our design encapsulates the philosophy and principles on which the Maggie’s Centres are based - the tree house concept maximises the relationship between the internal space and the external landscape offering discreet spaces for relaxation, information and therapy, it will provide a sympathetic and caring retreat, in tune with its surroundings.’
