Gartnavel will be the first to complete over the coming three months when it opens its doors on October 3, closely followed by sister schemes in Nottingham and Swansea.

Designed by Rem Koolhaas, of OMA the Glasgow build has been conceived as a ring of interlocking rooms around a central courtyard designed by Lily Jencks, daughter of Maggie’s founders, Charles and Maggie Jencks.
