Maggie’s Cancer Care Center is not a center for treatment but a place in which people can meet, receive help and guidance and the number of the visitors change during the day.

The center which is one both connected to the hospital whilst at the same time being set apart and independent on the boundary of Forester Hill Hospital presents ample sunlight and green landscape.

The building designed by Snøhetta Architects was conceived as a pavilion in its parkland setting and it envelops the courtyard by its soft exterior form.

The exterior shell creates the framework for the main spaces of the centre, whilst the timber interior buildings create warm and intimate spaces that the Centre requires. The building is approximately 6m above the existing ground level with a smaller mezzanine area for office functions.

The new centre was built at Forester Hospital in Aberdeen through an ambitious fundraising campaign by Maggie’s and the Elizabeth Montgomerie Foundation (EMF), which was founded by golfer Colin Montgomerie in memory of his mother.
