Maggies, Royal Marsden Hospital, Surrey

Working in partnership with The Royal Marsden - a world-leading cancer centre specialising in cancer diagnosis, treatment, research and education - the new Maggie’s Centre will further enhance the patient care on offer at The Royal Marsden.

The building is formed of four escalating volumes that wrap around a central courtyard. Its exterior clad in terracotta panels glazed in four shades of red that graduate from deep carmine to translucent coral. The fan-like shape was dictated by the movement of the sun, allowing it to enter the building throughout the day.
