/ABOUT
During my stay at NORD I was part of design proces from begining for a new hospic in Frederigsberg and helped with designig a concept to its very end.


/DESIGN
The city's pulse and the density, which is based in the city is used as a special quality in the new hospice. Architecture respects the new hospice neighborhood's construction scale and character traits from the surrounding buildings which can be found in a modern interpretation. The architectural and aesthetic expression supports the palliative treatment , and it has also sought to avoid light, sounds, smells and equipment, reminiscent a hospital. There is a vigor and sensuality characteristic of gardens and other outdoor spaces around the new hospice. Inside there is desire for a homely atmosphere. There is room privacy, but the action of the hospice is open and inviting.
A place where you feel welcome.
