Coincidentally, today’s second featured project also comes from the Danish capital, this time in a form of a recently-completed convalescent centre for patients battling or recovering from one of the most fundamental of diseases, cancer. Realised in 2011 by Nord Architects Copenhagen near the Copenhagen city centre and Copenhagen University Hospital (Rigshospitalet), the striking, white-clad centre comprises a number of individual, yet interconnected by a common multifaceted roof houses, which ‘provide the space needed for a modern health facility, without losing the comforting scale of the individual.’

More information about the centre:

 

‘Research shows that architecture has the potential to have a positive influence on people’s health. The key to this is designing at a human scale and creating a well-tempered physical environment with a homely atmosphere.’

 

‘The Healthcare Center for Cancer Patients in Copenhagen is conceived as an iconic building, which create awareness of cancer without stigmatizing the patients. Entering the building you find yourself in a comfy lounge area manned by volunteers. From here you move onto the others parts of the house, which includes a courtyard for contemplation, spaces for exercises, a common kitchen where you can learn to cook healthy food, meeting rooms for patients groups etc.’
