Henning Larsen Architects has worked intensively on developing hospital buildings. We combine spatial qualities with optimal logistics and technical main structures in sterling hospitals with safe treatment in pleasant settings. We believe that the architecture of the hospital regards inspiring and well-defined rooms; a rich and varied light and easily understandable organization are crucial for the well-being of the patient. When this is combined with optimal logistics and technical main structures it results in sterling hospitals where focus is on both effective and rational flow of work together with safe humane treatment in pleasant architectural settings.
What we offer
The Norwegian Radium Hospital – Research Institute
The Norwegian Radium Hospital - Research Institute - was completed in 2009. A single volume comprises the research complex with two wings and a central atrium. The volume is fitted into the landscape on a bastion that contains all plantrooms, storage and parking on the three underground levels. The building represents the cornerstone of a new development structure of the hospital focusing on flexibility in future heavy installations in laboratories with general as well as specialized functions such as gene and cell therapy. The meeting facilities for conferences and seminars as well as informal meetings among the researchers of the institution are essential to an innovative research environment.
The new Odense University Hospital (OUH) embodies an innovative building of high architectural quality, designed to meet the requirements and challenges of tomorrow. Like the goddess Aurora, the hospital finds renewal in the transition between old and new – and the conversion from tradition to modernity. The human scale supports the conception of the hospital as ”the good host” and a place where patients and visitors can easily orient themselves and feel at home. When approaching Aurora, you are met by an inviting and recognisable urban scale, where the complex is divided into varied units with each their clear entrance and reception area. The individual is in focus in the circular city structure whose ground plan meets the requirements for a highly efficient, flexible and future-proof hospital and at the same time meets the employees, patients and other users where they are and with a high degree of respect.
