Maggie's Centre in the grounds of Monklands Hospital in Airdrie

The building comprises a single-storey structure sited between two gardens, with all three components enclosed and unified by an encompassing brick wall.

There is a 2.5m drop from one end of the site to the other with the entrance at the upslope into the smaller of the two courtyards. The front door is set within an expanse of full-height glazing framed in slimline steel sections that admits a view across the body of the building, through another fully glazed wall closing its far end and out to the far brick wall of the second courtyard.

Internally a 3m-deep band comprising more cellular spaces has been ranged along one wall and a 5m-deep zone housing the offices and a multifunctional room, where group classes are hosted, is sited on the other. The entrance area, kitchen and library are distributed between.
