The New Hospital in West (in Danish 'DNV-Gødstrup') is situated near Herning and offers therapeutic and operational efficiency in the absolute elite. At the same time, it is designed to being perceived as friendly and accommodating by the patients, the relatives and the staff. Based on evidence-based design, the hospital enhances the relation between inside and outside by integrating the surrounding landscape as a vital part of the building design. The Jutlandic landscape thus forms the inspiration for the project’s use of the materials, which calls to mind a homely atmosphere instead of the clinic atmosphere of a traditional hospital.
