Education & Community

Maggie’s Aberdeen was built in 2013. It is a white building in the shape of a pebble or shell and offers warmth and a feeling of safety and protection to all its visitors.

Project Overview

Aberdeen Maggie Jencks Cancer Care Centres Trust £2 Million

Maggie’s Centres in collaboration with the Elizabeth Montgomerie Foundation appointed award winning Norwegian architects Snohetta and Halliday Fraser Munro to create Maggie’s Aberdeen.

The brief was to create a unique space in which Maggie’s professional oncology staff can deliver their programme of emotional and practical support to people affected by cancer. Snøhetta came up with the dynamic vision of a broken pebble which Halliday Fraser Munro then turned into the reality of a completed building.
