A strategy for bringing an iconic hospital into the 21st century
Bispebjerg Hospital in central Copenhagen was allocated $1BN AUD in 2010 toward a 15-year redevelopment of this important 1930s hospital heritage site into a state-of-the-art contemporary facility serving the larger Copenhagen area. TERROIR was approached to assist the project team in developing the key parameters around which the project would be developed.
The project was a three-stage international competition and the team proceeded to the final stage. The team’s design for the Bispebjerg Hospital was the winner of the prestigious MIPIM Architectural Review Future Projects Award, which was presented in Cannes in 2017. The award is a major recognition of a hospital design that is not only innovative on technical terms but – within the constraints of a hospital program – unites the historic and new buildings across a new landscape which connects to the existing. In mid-2010 TERROIR was engaged as Client Advisor for the redevelopment of the Bispebjerg Hospital in Copenhagen which was set to transform both the hospital and this area of Copenhagen over the next 15 years.
