CF moller‘s louver-clad complex with a central, sweeping lobby will enter the second phase of the competition for the new north zealand hospital, or nyt hospital nordsjælland, purported to become the largest in denmark at 124,000 square meters. while the 30 hectare site, just north of copenhagen, is on pristine land replete with lush greenery, the proposal organizes the palliative campus with a axial, double-shell curved lobby that effectively reclaims the vegetated space the hospital occupies. characterized by a series of internal gardens, the undulating form is both a fully habitable volume as well as above-grade courtyard– all pierced by elliptical moments of glazing as well as the staggered network of louver-patterned orthogonal volumes. 

 

the massive hospital is set to complement the development of a new urban area with its own train station. with a program that called for ‘outof-the-box’ thinking and streamlined logistics, access and integration, the hospital is set to become a major feeder for surrounding institutions and visibly provide the highest quality acute care. while interiors have yet to be released, the requirements specify the need for innovations regarding air quality and sound buffering, both factors seen as critical to the healing process. all in all, the proposals have seen fit for further consideration in the hospital’s need to ‘plan for uncertainty and design for change.’

from the judges: 

 

 

‘this proposal is the one which most clearly resolves the functional issues as these are described in the visions of the competition programme and description of, for example, the overarching hospital bed concept and distinctive flows. (.) even though this is a compact building complex, the design includes an interesting undulating lobby area, which is well-designed and adds interest. the proposal includes efficient functional distribution and it is easy to find one’s way around the building. the internal structure seems generally very open and welcoming.’
