New Holmenkollen Fyr by JDS Architects

Even though the new ski-jumping hill ‘New Holmenkollen Fyr’ in Oslo designed by the Danish JDS Architects is not fully completed, some jumps will be held on 13th and 14th of March. It is a trial test before the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships next year in Oslo, 24th of February – 6th March 2011.


“On the 3rd of March, Annette Sagen became the first official ski jumper to jump 106.5 meters during the opening ceremony of the Skijump, which set a new Holmenkollen jump record. From the 20 ski jumpers taking part of the opening ceremony, Rune Vetla, a local ski jumper had the longest jump at 141 meters, breaking and currently holding the record at Holmenkollen hill!”

“As a starting point for work on the Helsingør Psychiatric Hospital, we interviewed the users, patients, and staff members. This helped to provide a clearer understanding of the basic needs on which to base our design approach, while at the same time clarifying an important paradox to be solved. How does one combine the efficiency of a central organization with the freedom and autonomy of a decentralized complex? The hospital needs to allow control and protection while maintaining a free and open atmosphere. In terms of function it should be a logistically optimized hospital, but in terms of experience it is anything but a hospital.”

“The success of this project both in terms of design and operation has led JDS Architects into a collaboration with some of the leading researchers and lecturers in hospital care. The hospital is utilized as a best practices example for modern hospital design. The result has been an in-depth review of the project, which evaluated both the successes and failures. The material was then assembled presented by hospital specialists Knut Bergland and Pernille Weiss Terkildsen throughout Scandinavia and the UK.”
