After an international competition, the design by KHR Arkitekter, WHR Architects and Arup International Ltd. has been selected for the new Bispebjerg Somatic Hospital in the Bispebjerg region of Copenhagen, Denmark. Being added to an existing hospital campus project that will include a somatic hospital, a psychiatry hospital, laboratory/logistics building and a parking garage, the new hospital will help meet the region’s demands.

The winning proposal is made up of six towers connected via a diagnostic/treatment base that reflects existing historical buildings in Bispebjerg. The exterior facades are a brick ombre pattern, fading from red to yellow as they move up to the top of the building. Simultaneously, the project addresses its surroundings while defining a unique architectural language for itself.

The interiors of the buildings are influenced by both Danish and American hospital typologies.

"The design of the wards is new and innovative. For instance, it will be much easier for the patient to get to the bathroom unassisted, minimizing the risk of the patient slipping or falling and ensuring that they are more independent. This makes a huge difference to patients," said Executive Vice President of Bispebjerg and Frederiksberg Hospital, Claes Brylle Hallqvist, in a press release.

With an approximate budget of $240 million, the Bispebjerg Somatic Hospital will be the largest project of the “New Hospital and Mental Health Bispebjerg,” including an emergency department; imaging and surgery; and roughly 600 patient rooms.
