Maggie's Leeds
by Heatherwick Studio

Hufton & Crow

Heatherwick Studio has completed its first healthcare project in Leeds, which marks cancer charity Maggie's twenty-sixth care centre in the UK.

The care centre is located within the campus of St James's University Hospital in Leeds.

The charity provides free practical and emotional support for people with cancer, as well as their friends and families.

The 462 square-metre centre has been designed as a group of three large-scale planters, built on a sloped site.

Drawing upon the philosophy of Maggie's and the belief that great design can help people feel better, Maggie's Leeds uses several "healthy" materials and energy-saving techniques.


This project has been longlisted in the civic building category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
