Hospice Sondergard

Henning Larsen as Architects

The purpose of Hospice Søndergård was to offer terminal patients as much quality of life and dignity as possible in the concluding part of life. The physical surroundings should be dignifying and inspiring – regardless if you are a patient, nurse or relative.


Hospice Søndergaard is the third Danish hospice designed according to Realdania’s principles for ”the good hospice”. The hospice is situated in Måløv, Ballerup, and comprises 14 individual living rooms. The building is a modern interpretation of a traditional farm where the deep niches create private, roofed terraces with a view of the adjacent lake. On the inside, the wings form two luxuriant, timbered courtyards and a varied green path appealing to all senses connects the building to the park and lake.


The hospice has a clear and simple layout based on the overall functions of the building. Thus, the common areas and staff facilities are placed near the entrance to provide all rooms with the highest possible degree of privacy. Focus has been on creating a safe and homely atmosphere and all residents have the opportunity to put their personal mark on their 36 furnished square metres.
