Ab Rogers Design has built a Maggie’s Centre for the Royal Marsden cancer treatment hospital clad in glazed red terracotta and surrounded by a Piet Oudolf-designed garden.

The centre in Sutton, England, is formed of four inter-connected volumes with large glazed fronts.

Ab Rogers Design已為皇家馬斯登癌症治療醫院建造了Maggie’s中心,其外牆是紅色的陶土,周圍是Piet Oudolf設計的花園。


Maggie’s Centres are cancer treatment centres that provide comfortable and attractive surroundings for patients and their loved ones.

“A Maggie’s centre must fulfil many functions,” said studio founders Ab Rogers and Ernesto Bartolini. “To do its job, it must straddle the hospital and the home. It must offer information, workshops, therapy, community, solitude, solace and a cup of tea.”


製片廠創始人Ab Rogers和Ernesto Bartolini說:“ Maggie的中心必須履行許多職能。” “要做好工作,它必須跨越醫院和家庭。它必須提供信息,講習班,療法,社區,孤獨,慰藉和一杯茶。”

Ab Rogers Design chose red to make the Royal Marsden centre cheerful, yet sensitive to the brick houses nearby. The terracotta was bent and extruded to form the exaggerated corrugated effect and painted in shades of glossy carmine and coral.

Inside, the bright red continues with the staircases and kitchen island.

Ab Rogers Design選擇了紅色,以使皇家馬斯登中心變得開朗,但對附近的磚瓦房敏感。 兵馬俑被彎曲和擠壓以形成誇張的波紋效果,並塗上光澤的胭脂紅和珊瑚色。


“Believing in colour’s sensual and psychological power, we coloured the surrounding rooms to suit the functions and activities they host,” said Rogers and Bartolini.


A living room with plush sofas is themed around the colour green, with a geometric rug by creative consultant Blue Farrier. Another living space is painted a deep purple with pink seating and art by Carol Robertson on the wall.

帶有毛絨沙發的客廳以綠色為主題,創意顧問Blue Farrier配以幾何地毯。 另一個生活空間被牆壁上的卡羅爾·羅伯森(Carol Robertson)塗上了深紫色,粉紅色的座椅和藝術品。

Blocks of colour in the form of walls and architectural elements are offset by sturdy walnut furnishings, including the front door.

Every door handle in the Maggie’s Centre is hand carved and unique.



The kitchen and courtyard is at the centre of the building’s plan. Ab Rogers prioritised its views out over the garden to create a calming atmosphere.

Rather than use institutional-style corridors to connect the rooms, the overlapping volumes contain rooms that fan out from this central, double-height space.

廚房和庭院是建築計劃的核心。 艾伯·羅傑斯(Ab Rogers)優先考慮花園景色,營造出寧靜的氛圍。


Private rooms for counselling and therapy have skylights to allow natural light in while giving the users privacy. Floors are made from polished concrete.

A timber garden house stands separate from the main building across the courtyard.

用於輔導和治療的私人房間有天窗,可讓自然光進入,同時為用戶提供隱私。 地板由拋光混凝土製成。


Dutch landscape designer Piet Oudolf used 12,000 plants for the garden, including 14 different species of grasses and 50 perennials.

Oudolf planted them in interlocking blocks, planned so that their colours will create interesting shapes as their leaves, flowers and seeds change throughout the year.

荷蘭景觀設計師Piet Oudolf為該花園使用了12,000種植物,其中包括14種不同的草和50種多年生植物。


High-nectar plants were chosen to attract bees and butterflies.


Stencilled illustrations of butterflies in terracotta by the designer Sara Fanelli decorate the facade, and her hand painted designs decorate the glass windows too.

幕牆由設計師Sara Fanelli製作,並印有陶土蝴蝶的模版插圖,而玻璃窗則採用她的手繪設計。

Maggie’s Cancer Care Centres were co-founded by the late Maggie Keswick Jencks and her husband architect and critic Charles Jencks, who passed away last year.

Norman Foster, Amanda Levete and Frank Gehry are among the many architects who have designed a Maggie’s Centre for the project.

瑪姬的癌症護理中心由已故的瑪姬·凱西克·詹克斯(Maggie Keswick Jencks)和她的丈夫建築師兼評論家查爾斯·詹克斯(Charles Jencks)去年共同創立。

諾曼·福斯特(Norman Foster),阿曼達·萊維特(Amanda Levete)和弗蘭克·蓋里(Frank Gehry)是為該項目設計了瑪吉中心的眾多建築師之一。
