Big ambitions

The London Cancer Hub is a project with an ambitious plan to create the world’s leading life-science and healthcare district specialising in cancer research and treatment.

The design team have created an open, equitable campus that provides attractive work and leisure space for researchers, clinicians and the community, whilst creating an outstanding healing environment for patients.

The Spatial Vision

A vibrant community will be created on the allocated site in Sutton, with research buildings, hospital facilities, a school, restaurants, cafes, leisure space and hotel accommodation for visitors and patients. 

The guiding principles for the spatial vision are to create a flexible urban structure with a clear hierarchy of routes and public spaces, transforming the site into a welcoming, open and accessible place.

Ensuring local growth

Careful consideration have been applied to ensure that all aspects of The London Cancer Hub are integrated with local growth planning.

Existing research and clinical uses will be kept operational throughout.
