Shortlist for Bispeberg Hospital (Denmark) Announced

Three firms have been shorlisted for the second phase of the design competition for the new Bispebjerg Hospital. The 70,500 sqm (758,855 sqft) somatic hospital is to be built on the existing Bispebjerg Hospital campus in Copenhagen bringing together Bispebjerg and Frederiksberg Hospitals.

The three firms are C.F. Møller, COWI and a consortium comprising WHR Architects Europe, KHR Architects A/S and Arup Denmark. Commenting on the WHR + KHR + Arup submission, jury members cited the finalists’ abilities to achieve the delicate balance between designing a modern hospital with optimum functionality, while preserving the historic legacy of the 100-year old Bispebjerg hospital campus. In addition it achieves the requirements for a brick-clad pavilion with clear references to the historic facility, a priority on access to daylight, and opens up the hospital to views of nature.

A winner will be selected at the end of Summer 2015.
