Daniel Libeskind is the latest architect to design a Maggie’s cancer care centre, releasing visuals of building covered in angled timber louvres that is set to be built in London.

The Maggie’s Centre will be located by the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead, north London.

Prefabricated wooden louvres will form the facade, angled to provide sun shading and create the centre’s curving shape, which is designed to be a welcoming place.

Daniel Libeskind是設計Maggie癌症護理中心的最新建築師,他發布了建在倫敦的傾斜木質百葉窗建築的視覺效果。



“It will be designed to contrast with its more clinical hospital surroundings, drawing in newcomers with an approachable and undulating timber form,” said Studio Libeskind.

“Timber has been chosen as a renewable material to emphasise the building’s human character.”

From the inside, the louvres will frame views through windows. There will be 97 windows in total, ensuring the 26 rooms are filled with natural light.

Maggie’s Centres are charity-run spaces around the United Kingdom and Hong Kong that offer expert support for those affected by cancer, whether they are suffering from the disease or are affected by the illness of a loved one or family member.

Studio Libeskind說:“它的設計將與其更臨床的醫院環境形成鮮明對比,吸引新人採用平易近人的起伏木材形式。”


從內部看,百葉窗將通過窗戶構成視圖。 共有97個窗戶,確保26間客房充滿自然光線。


The Hampstead Maggie’s will have a small footprint, but to maximise the space the building will be bigger on the upper stories.

On the roof, which is level with the surrounding trees, a rooftop garden will be built.

漢普斯特德瑪吉(Hampstead Maggie)的佔地面積很小,但為了最大化空間,上層建築的建築將更大。


Planted gardens with seating will be placed at both entries, along with walkways connecting the centre to the hospital.

“We see the role of this building as providing an oasis for those affected by cancer, a place of respite in an ever more chaotic and bureaucratic world,” added the architecture studio.



Polish-American architect Libeskind, who co-founded Studio Libeskind in 1989, will join other high profile designers of Maggie’s Centres, including Norman Foster, Amanda Levete and Steven Holl.

Benedetta Tagliabue has built a Maggie’s Centre in Barcelona, with interiors designed by 2019 Dezeen Awards judge Patricia Urquiola.

Other upcoming Studio Libeskind projects with characteristically angular forms include an archaeology museum in Chile and a paleoanthropology museum on a cliff edge in Kenya.

波蘭裔美國建築師Libeskind於1989年共同創立了Studio Libeskind,他將加入Maggie中心的其他知名設計師,包括Norman Foster,Amanda Levete和Steven Holl。

Benedetta Tagliabue在巴塞羅那建造了一個Maggie中心,內部設計由2019年的Dezeen Awards法官Patricia Urquiola設計。

其他即將推出的具有特色角形的Studio Libeskind項目包括智利的考古博物館和肯尼亞懸崖邊緣的古人類學博物館。
