Patients needing psychiatric care at Bispebjerg will be greeted by bright and open settings, tailored to ensure a good level of care, while providing a safe environment for patients, relatives and employees at Psychiatric Center Copenhagen.
The project, designed by PLH Arkitekter in collaboration with Friis & Moltke, focuses on actively using architecture to create a healing environment for patients and offers space for activities both indoors and outdoors.
The new hospital is being built in stages and is expected to be completed in 2025 and offer a total of 200 beds. In 2022, the first building, housing the emergency department, four wards with 74 beds, an ECT clinic and administration offices, opened.
“At PLH Arkitekter, we have shown several times how architecture can make a positive difference to our well-being. That expertise has been our foundation in the tender competition and when we subsequently developed the new Psychiatric Center Bispebjerg, all in close dialogue with patients, relatives and employees. I am very happy to see that the result is now a flexible setting for positive, stable treatment with the patient in focus, where the open, welcoming and stimulating environment supports a good process,” says Lars Toksvig, partner at PLH Arkitekter.
