The new Maggie’s Cancer Centre in the grounds of The Christie Hospital in Manchester is roofed in Nordic Bronze, one of a palette of materials giving Foster + Partners’ design its essential sense of warmth. The Nordic Bronze clad roof rises in the centre to create a mezzanine level, naturally illuminated by triangular roof lights, and is supported by lightweight timber lattice beams. Nordic Bronze is produced by Aurubis, part of the world’s leading integrated copper group and largest copper recycler. Other copper external wall finishes from Aurubis include Nordic Brass, also available pre-weathered, and Nordic Royal which gives a rich golden through-colour that is very stable. In addition to Nordic Standard copper, Aurubis architectural surfaces include Nordic Green, Nordic Blue and Nordic Brown.
