Maggie’s Taunton, Somerset, South West England

Alison Brooks Architects appointed to design Maggie’s Taunton. The new building will be located in the grounds of Musgrove Park Hospital.

ABA will work with Johanna Gibbons of JLG Landscape Architecture and structural engineers Webb Yates.

Alison Brooks said the practice was “honoured and delighted” to be the latest high-profile architect to design a Maggie’s cancer care centre: “Our project will build on Maggie Keswick Jencks’ legacy of extraordinary and uplifting spaces for cancer patients and their families with creative working environments for the Maggie’s team. Taunton is in a beautiful part of Somerset and we hope our project, overlooking the Blackdown Hills, will make the most of this opportunity.”

Maggie’s chief executive Laura Lee said the charity was “excited” by the architecture practice’s designs so far.

In a period when the delivery of new houses has reached its lowest level since the 1920s, the judges felt it was particularly important to recognise the work of an architect making an inspiring contribution to the sector. Alison Brooks Architects emerged as a clear winner, her contribution to the field of volume housing being deemed particularly worthy of celebration.
