Danish architectural firm wins big hospital project in Finland

In collaboration with Finnish advisers, one of Scandinavia’s leading architectural firms, C.F. Møller Architects, has won the task of carrying out a 160,000 square meter extension of Tampere University Hospital in Finland.

Every year, Tampere University Hospital offers demanding and specialized treatments to almost one million Finns in almost all medical specialties and the hospital needs to be modernized to continuously ensure effective care and optimal working conditions for staff.

C.F. Møller Architects will collaborate with some of the best-known local architectural firms to ensure that Tampere University Hospital has a completely new, modern hospital complex that meets the need for a future-proof hospital structure and an architecture that supports patient healing and ensures good working conditions for the staff. This is achieved by designing an inviting hospital with a focus on healing architecture including single bed rooms and patient-focused processes.

The project will be implemented over a 10-year period and starts with a new master plan, which will form the basis for the coming phases. The project is expected to begin in early 2021.
