Heatherwick Studio 为Maggie’s设计的这座活动中心，是一家专为癌症患者提供免费实践和情感支持的慈善机构。该中心占地462平方米，位于利兹的圣詹姆斯大学医院园区内，是该慈善机构在英国的第26个中心，也是该工作室设计的第一个医疗保健项目。
Heatherwick Studio’s centre for Maggie’s, the charity that provides free practical and emotional support for people with cancer. The 462 sq metre centre, located within the campus of St. James’s University Hospital in Leeds, is the charity’s 26th centre in the UK and the first completed healthcare project designed by the studio.
Maggie’s Leeds is designed as a group of three large-scale planters, built on a sloped site, that each enclose a counselling room. These surround the ‘heart’ of the centre – the kitchen – as well as more social spaces for group activities including a library and exercise room.
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. The building’s structure is built from a prefabricated and sustainably-sourced spruce timber system. Porous materials such as lime plaster help to maintain the internal humidity of the naturally- ventilated building, which has been achieved through careful consideration of the building’s form and orientation.
建筑上的屋顶花园由屡获殊荣的景观设计师Balston Agius设计，其灵感来自约克郡当地的林地景观，以本土的英国植物为特色，旁边是常绿树木区域，为冬季提供温暖。受Maggie Keswick Jencks对园艺的热爱的启发，游客们也会被鼓励参与照料养护现场的23000株球茎和其它17000株植物。
The rooftop garden, designed by award-winning landscape designers Balston Agius, is inspired by Yorkshire woodlands and features native English species of plants, alongside areas of evergreen to provide warmth in the winter months. Inspired by Maggie Keswick Jencks’ love of gardening, visitors are encouraged to participate in the care of the 23,000 bulbs and 17,000 plants on site.
The interior of the centre explores everything that is often missed in healing environments: natural and tactile materials, soft lighting, and a variety of spaces designed to encourage social opportunities as well as quiet contemplation. Window sills and shelves are intended for visitors to fill with their own objects to create a sense of home. The studio has also designed two tables, inspired by the building’s timber fins and built from cork and engineered beech timber, which reside in the heart of the centre.
Thomas Heatherwick, Founder of Heatherwick Studio, said: “It’s been a tremendous experience and honour to design the Maggie’s centre in Leeds. Our aim was to build a home for people affected by cancer that would be soulful and welcoming, unlike other typical clinical environments. By only using natural, sustainable materials and immersing the building in thousands of plants, there was a chance for us to make an extraordinary environment capable of inspiring visitors with hope and perseverance during their difficult health journeys.
Maggie’s Leeds has been a very special project for me and my team because we are convinced that there are kinder, more empathic ways to design places that can have powerful impacts on the way that we feel. This is particularly important in the design of healthcare environments, but is so frequently overlooked.”
Maggie’s首席执行官Laura Lee则说道：“在癌症患者比以往任何时候都更需要我们的帮助的时候，把Maggie’s带到利兹，是最好的办法。该中心坐落在一块极具挑战性的地块上，设计精美。我们很高兴Heatherwick Studio能够在他们的设计中融入大量的绿色空间，因为我们知道，与自然相联系，以及伟大的建筑和设计都可以对人们的精神和身体健康产生巨大的影响。我们希望参观该中心的人们能喜欢Balston Agius的种植和花园设计，以及对利兹中心的设计和布局感到舒适。”
Laura Lee, Chief Executive of Maggie’s, said: “It is fantastic to be bringing Maggie’s to Leeds at a time when people with cancer need our support more than ever. The centre has been designed beautifully on a challenging plot of land. We were so pleased that Heatherwick Studio were able to incorporate plenty of green space into their design, as we know that a connection to nature, as well as great architecture and design can have a huge impact on people’s health, both mentally and physically. We hope that people visiting the centre enjoy the planting and gardens by Balston Agius and feel comforted by the design and layout of the centre.”
Heatherwick Studio组长Mat Cash说：“参与Maggie’s Leeds这项慈善工作的建设是我们团队的荣幸。作为医院园区内仅存的绿地之一，我们想要创造一个可提供近5000平方英尺的开放、受欢迎的中心，让人有被自然包围的感觉，我们认为这在医疗保健环境中非常重要，因为他可以起到疗愈的作用。通过利用场地的斜坡高差条件，该中心还为游客提供了医院园区以外的景观视野，可以欣赏到约克郡山谷以及更远的地方。”
Mat Cash, Group Leader at Heatherwick Studio, said: “Maggie’s Leeds has been a privilege for our team to work on given the importance of the charity’s work. As one of the last remaining green sites within the hospital’s campus, we wanted to provide an open, welcoming centre of nearly 5000 sq ft which felt encompassed by lots of nature, something we felt was extremely important in a healthcare environment because of its restorative effects. By utilising the sloping contours of the site, the centre also offers visitors a visual connection beyond the immediate hospital campus with inspiring views of the Yorkshire Dales and beyond.”

The centre is currently open for people with cancer and their families and friends to visit. Social distancing and cleaning measures are being taken. Maggie’s is currently encouraging visitors to call ahead and make an appointment to see the team. Visitors who are being seen in the hospital are also welcome.

Maggie’s Leeds拓展了工作室长期以来对建筑环境中的亲生物角色的兴趣，最近在新加坡完成的新住宅建筑EDEN就是最好的例证，以及预计将于2021年完工的纽约Pier55小岛(Little Island at Pier55)也是一个新的公园和表演空间，另外，上海的“1000棵树”综合体项目，建成后也有近2.5万株植物和100多种不同的植物和树木。
Maggie’s Leeds expands upon the studio’s long-standing interest in the role of biophilia within the built environment, best demonstrated by the recently completed, EDEN, a new residential building in Singapore; Little Island at Pier55, a new park and performance space in New York City that is due to complete in 2021; and 1000 Trees, a mixed-use development in Shanghai, which on completion will include 25,000 individual plants and 100 different species of plants and trees.
