A new home for Maggie’s Royal Free

Maggie's Royal Free Hospital

Construction works for a new purpose-built Maggie’s centre in the grounds of the Royal Free Hospital began in October 2021. 

The Royal Free London worked closely with Maggie’s on this exciting project and the centre, designed by world-renowned architect Daniel Libeskind, is due to open in November 2023.

Maggie’s creates unique spaces for delivering professional integrated support, combining exceptional building design with an evidence-based programme that helps people deal with the psychological, practical, social and financial impacts of a cancer diagnosis.

Maggie’s Royal Free has been thoughtfully designed to be calming and welcoming. 

It has large open spaces for group activities, a kitchen table to chat to other people and plenty of peaceful corners for quiet moments and a chance to gather your thoughts.

The building is nestled into a planted garden to the rear and extends at the front to provide quiet seating, as well as connecting to existing walkways on the hospital campus. 

An additional garden at roof level creates a serene enclosure for visitors — a peaceful outdoor retreat that aligns with the canopies of the surrounding foliage.
