The Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre - Harrogate


Based in Harrogate, the Robert Ogden Centre was designed as an exemplar scheme for Macmillan Cancer Support. In association with architects, interior designers and artist we created a sensitive and attractive environment for patients, staff and visitors. We worked hard to integrate design details and materials that connect the interior spaces with the external areas and draw nature into the heart of the building to create a therapeutic environment.
