macmillan hospital london
Designed by Hopkins Architects, the Macmillan Cancer Hospital in London was conceived with a green
space at it heart, but several floors up. Weight loading was a particular issue on this glass roof garden
so the planters were manufactured with metal attachment points so they could be bolted directly onto
the supporting framework and away from the glass. The result is what appears to be suspended planters
floating above the roof top. In addition to the roof the building features planting beds on all levels, framing
it in nature for the patients enjoyment and relaxation.
