Inverness new Maggie's Centre opens later this month

  • Comment

This new Maggie's Centre in Inverness, designed by Page\Park with input from Charles Jencks, will open later this month. The Glasgow-based practice has already designed one Maggie's Centre, which offers cancer care. 'We were surprised we got the second one, ' said director David Page. 'I'm not sure if they felt sorry for us.' The centre has been set back from the surrounding streets with what Page describes as a 'modesty strip of grass', designed by Jencks, which offsets it from nearby houses.

'If you look out of the window there's this curving landscape that takes presence away from the cars passing by outside. That's the point, so that it's made easier for you to have peace with your own thoughts, ' said Page. The centre will be officially unveiled this week and will open on 25 June, to coincide with this year's Architecture Week, which will run from 17-26 June. Page\Park also designed the Maggie's Centre at the Western Infirmary, Glasgow. The Inverness Centre was completed in April of this year, after receiving planning permission in 2002.
