A new façade refurbishment designed by Heatherwick Studio to conceal the existing boiler house located next to the main entrance of the Guy’s and Saint Thomas’ Hospital in London. An old building commonly regarded as gloomy and unwelcoming.

The new skin consists of 108 almost identical hyperbolic paraboloid panels covered with a woven stainless steel mesh.

The result is a distinctive and uplifting building with a dynamic undulating surface – a radical transformation with one simple gesture.
