Maggie's runs a number of centres around the UK to help anybody affected by cancer, from just being diagnosed or undergoing treatment, to post-treatment, recurrence or in bereavement. The Oxford centre is currently being run from a Portakabin on the Churchill Hospital site but they will soon be moving into marvellous new £3m shedlike timber tree house buildings close by designed by Wilkinson Eyre (where you can find more images). “Our design encapsulates the philosophy and principles on which the Maggie’s Centres are based," says the firm's Chris Wilkinson. "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." The treehouse structure will be suppported on stilts, as shown in the image above. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Saturday posts are sponsored by Warwick Buildings , manufacturers of outstanding quality timber buildings.
