AART architects competes for psychiatric hospital

31.03.2014 / Together with SMAK architects and Nordic we have been appointed as one of the winning teams of the open ideas competition for the new psychiatric hospital at the New Hospital in West near Herning, Denmark. Three teams have been selected to go through to the final phase.
In this second and final phase, we are up against Steen Palsbøll Arkitekter and OP Arkitekter together with Moe and Arkitema. We look forward to negotiating with the Central Denmark Region and fine-tuning our competition proposal so it meets the region's visions and requirements for the 14,800 sqm psychiatric hospital.
The psychiatric hospital will be based on evidence-based design and it will include 80 adult psychiatric beds, 13 child and adolescent psychiatric beds as well as outpatient functions for adult, child and adolescent psychiatry. The winning proposal for the psychiatric hospital will be announced in October 2014.
