Framtidens Akademiska Ingång 100

Ingång 100 is home for advanced treatment, care and research in a state-of-the art facility at Uppsala University Hospital’s Framtidens Akademiska. Although built to a rigorous technical specification, flexibility in plan allows the hospital trust to adjust facilities to adapt to future demands and new technologies.

Strengthening the link between research and care

Ingång 100 sits adjacent to the hospital’s other buildings for advanced care and research along the hospital’s central zone on Dag Hammarskjölds Road. The facility will host surgery, diagnostics and oncology for general and advanced care. As a teaching hospital, it was essential to integrate research and treatment facilities. A series of air bridges connects Ingång 100 to the other advanced treatment buildings located in the central block of the campus. Along with other refurbishments to Uppsala University Hospital, Ingång 100 will give a greater number of patients access to state-of-the-art care and treatment facilities, enabled by intelligent spatial planning and technical design.

Advanced care and research, enabled by technical innovation – the hospital of the future.

Evidence-based design principles

Evidence-based research shaped the building design, that maximises daylight and greenery to aid patient recovery. The facility is designed in two parts that surround a large green, light-filled garden. Treatment rooms are housed in brick volumes, while public areas and an educational gallery space showcases activities and research. External-beam radiotherapy treatment (LINAC) rooms sit in a separate volume, organised around a smaller courtyard garden. The building is designed to achieve a Miljöbyggnad Gold environmental standard.

Digital innovation

The use of digital design tools has gone a long way towards simplifying the design and delivery process for the large multidisciplinary team. Tools such as BIM and 3D modelling have facilitated a clear communication of visualisations, detailed design and information management, streamlining the vast coordination of knowledge required for a building of this complexity and scale.

Balancing complexities

Medical architecture presents a unique set of complexities; patient wellbeing and practitioner needs must be balanced with logistical practicalities, like people circulation and transport access. The commission has demanded involvement throughout all project stages; from needs analysis and feasibility, through to architecture, landscape and interiors design and delivery. White Arkitekter acted as Architect and Lead Consultant for the project, responsible for 14 sub-consultant teams.
