Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects takes pride in providing evidence based healthcare design. We perpetuate the standpoint of rehumanization of architecture. For an architecture that is designed to serve people and society. For the human needs for optimal combination of spatial qualities, functional logistics and integrated technology.
SHL Architects produce excellent innovative healthcare design with respect to the fragility of the patientusergroup. Careful integration of medical technology into the design alleviates the otherwise mechanical atmosphere and functions as one of the methods to create comforting architecture.
Management of both the creative, the constructive and the humanrelated process during the evolution of architectural objects also belong to our core services. Skilled professional managers leads the architecture projects from first sketch to delivery of the building.
Being experts on awardwinning architectural design, we embrace and meet the needs of the client and the users through intensive dialogue during the programming and again at delivery to create ownership to optimal use and maintenance.
Research has proven a clear connection between physical environment and patient healing. As an example, the exposure to a natural daylight rhythm shows a clear correlation with the patient’s healing rate. We use this knowledge in the design of New Kolding Hospital: The architecture can be a direct contributing factor in the treatment and recovery phase. Our design approach to Kolding hospital defines that the logistic and architecture goes hand in hand and supports a rational and efficient clinical operation. We focus on the human scale and recognize the importance of creation of embracing spaces, when dealing with difficult issues such as illness.
