RIBA Regional Award Stirling Prize 2014- Maggies Cancer Care Centre, Freeman Hospital, Newcastle upon Tyne
“No Maggie’s Centre is ever anything but interesting. This one has a Japanese style grid underlying the structure and the way internal divisions are dealt with, but that never takes precedence.
The centre has the Maggie’s trademark sense of warmth; its nurturing, protective ideal mirrored in the way the earth is drawn up round it into berms. Exposed concrete mass, natural ventilation, low G-value glazing and shading roof forms allow generous visual connection to the external area without overheating. It is also connected the hospital’s district heating and has 60m2 of photovoltaics – thus its Regional Sustainability Award.”
