Well connected and integrated
The positioning of the emergency ward is carefully considered to make sure the new buildings are well integrated with the existing at Aker hospital, and that the main entrance connects with the central park area.
Oslo University Hospital inhabits the western wing of the building and Oslo municipality will be housed in the eastern wing. Connecting the two is a reception area at ground level and bridges on the levels above.
Expressing solidity and safety, the facades are divided up in areas of various materials reflecting buildings nearby.
High sustainability ambitions
Planned to be certified with BREEAM Excellent, the emergency ward will be built to passive house standard, in a way that ensures low energy use throughout the life time of the building.
The design team is also determined to facilitate a sustainable building process and an environmentally friendly building site.
