From the architect. CZWG was commissioned by Maggie’s to design a new cancer care centre in Nottingham to serve the East Midlands Cancer Network. It is set on a wooded slope in the grounds of Nottingham City Hospital Campus, between the Oncology Department and the Breast Unit.

The two story building ‘floats’ above the ground on a semi basement and is accessed by a wide bridge from up the slope. It is visibly part of the hospital but lifted up protectively amongst the trees.

The green glazed oval elevation with their overlapping corners front economical square plans in which the many rooms required flow from one to another. The section exploits the curved roof and soffit to provide different height rooms and spaces. They have been richly furnished to the design of Sir Paul Smith, a famous son of Nottingham. Large balconies extend the rooms out within touching distance of the tree canopies.

Sketchup is great for conceptual models. This building's form should have stopped there.

Such experiments belong to google sketchup. The building design looks horrible on the outside.
