Good interaction between the building units
The new build is planned as a low-rise building complex with all patient areas on the ground floor. To the east, a volume forming a ridge towards the entrance area contains the common functions. Four fingers extend with 24-hour units to the west. The building contains eighty patient rooms distributed over eight 24-hour units. The 24-hour units are connected in pairs, in the four fingers towards the forest edge. The vestibule, the emergency room, activity areas such as indoor sports hall and gym, canteen and group rooms are located in the ridge to the east. Offices and staff areas are located on the second floor, in the back.
The facility has many different, small and large courtyards. Each 24-hour unit has access to an inner courtyard, the sheltered housing units have their own small courtyards and between the fingers, there are larger, more open outdoor areas. Separate emergency rooms are planned to the south and north for adults and the young.
Bright and welcoming
When choosing solutions for the project, emphasis has been placed on accessibility and universal design. The entrance is bright and welcoming, with a good overview of common areas and outdoor areas. The building is designed to provide easy way-finding and good visual contact.
