由Heatherwick Studio打造的Maggie’s中心于近日正式完工并揭幕。Maggie’s中心是一家致力于为癌症患者提供免费的健康和情感支持的慈善机构，本次新落成的中心位于利兹圣詹姆斯大学医院，是Maggie’s在英国的第26个中心，同时也是Heatherwick Studio的首个已建成的医疗建筑项目。
Heatherwick Studio’s centre for Maggie’s, the charity that provides free practical and emotional support for people with cancer, was unveiled on its completion. 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.

屋顶花园由屡获殊荣的景观设计事务所Balston Agius设计，其灵感来源于约克郡的林地景观，并种植以英国的本地物种。此外还设有数个常绿植物区，能够在冬季创造温暖的气候。在Maggie Keswick Jencks本人对园艺的热爱的影响下，Maggie’s中心的客人们被鼓励亲自参与场地中植物的维护，包括23,000株球茎和17,000株草木。
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.

Heatherwick Studio的创始人Thomas Heatherwick表示：“担任利兹Maggie’s中心的设计师是一次无比重要的经历和极大的荣誉。我们的目标是为受到癌症影响的人群建立一个不同于典型医疗环境的、温馨且能够治愈心灵的家园。我们在建筑中只选用了天然可持续的材料，并让成千上万株植物环绕在建筑周围，这样的环境将有助于来访者在艰难的治疗过程中获得希望和毅力。对于我和我的团队而言，利兹Maggie’s中心是一个非常特别的项目，因为我们深信，更具人性化和同理心的设计方法能够对我们的感受产生巨大的影响，这一点在医疗环境的设计中尤其重要，却常常被人们忽视。”
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表示：“我们非常庆幸能够在癌症患者亟需支援的时刻，将Maggie’s的服务带到利兹。新的中心以优美的姿态在充满挑战性的场地上落成，这要感谢Heatherwick Studio与我们的倾力合作。我们非常高兴地看到设计中加入了大量的绿色空间，我们深知与自然的亲密联系，以及优秀的建筑和设计都将对人的身心健康带来巨大的影响。我们希望中心的客人们能够在Balston Agius设计的花园中获得愉悦的体验，并且从室内空间的布局中感到舒适和安慰。”
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的项目组负责人Mat Cash表示：“鉴于Maggie’s工作内容的重大意义，我们的团队非常荣幸能够参与到这个项目当中。项目所在场地是医院园区中仅存的一块绿地，我们希望在此基础上建立一个面积接近5000平方英尺的、开放而友好的中心，同时为人们带来被大自然包围的体验——自然的治愈作用在医疗环境中非常重要。利用场地的倾斜形态，中心还成为了视觉中的连接元素，使来访者的视线能够跨越医院园区，投向约克郡山谷乃至更远处的壮观美景。
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.
