Urban Hospice

Nord Architects Copenhagen as Architects

NORD Architects has designed a new hospice for the deaconess community, located in Copenhagen, Denmark. The project replace an existing hospice, and is designed to reflect and support the notion that healing architecture has a positive effect on palliative patients. The overall form and concept were heavily influenced by the complex site conditions and the proximity of the neighbouring built context. Within these parameters, the vision was to create a warm and protecting atmosphere. The design incorporates both curved and rectilinear elements that allow for an optimal functional layout, built around a private inner courtyard.

The hospice accommodate a capacity of 16 beds.

The design-process of the building consisted of a close collaboration between architects, clients and users through a dialogue based process that had a major impact on the final design. ‘By considering the needs of the users, client and neighbours, Urban Hospice sets a new standard on how you can build innovative healthcare projects in urban contexts.’ says Morten Rask Gregersen partner in NORD Architects Copenhagen. The project was designed at a scale that adapted to the neighbourhood, presenting a combination of spacious views and privacy for the patients.

Das Hospiz verfügt über eine Kapazität von 16 Betten.
