Maggies Olympia

The London International Fine Art Fair (LIFAF) supported Maggie’s Centres as their charity of choice. As such Maggie’s was offered a space at the fair for a garden ‘stand’ and we were appointed to develop a design.

With the small space and budget a very simple design was the way forward. Maggie’s Tree of Hope was:

“A specimen flowering tree that spreads its canopy like a metaphorical umbrella that is a Maggie’s Centre: a home-from-home place where visitors can ‘shelter’ and be offered advice: a refuge for support during the bad days and a blossoming of hope.”

The tree is raised on a circular wooden plinth with a mounded turf base and red steps cut out that lead up to the tree. The riser of each step names the Maggie’s Centres open to date.”
