An attractive and humanistic building of high architectural value
Attractive, humanistic environments of high architectural value can be experienced in both the care and research facilities. An overall design strategy is developed with respect for the existing as well as exploring new qualities of the site. The new building is located in the extension of the hospital’s wings in order to maximise existing hospital function (facilities, infrastructure and workflows) as effectively as possible, while all new operating theatres are located along the facades, with daylight and beautiful views over the park.
A central factor in the design process has been the overall aesthetic of Huddinge. The existing buildings have a defined horizontality, which contrasts with the vertical character of the facades. The new facade is made of precast concrete, a manufacturing process allowing for a variety of colours and textures as well as ensuring longevity and ease of installation.
