Herzog & de Meuron Wins Competition to Design Denmark's North Zealand Hospital

15 April, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell


Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron has been commissioned for its first Scandinavian project, the North Zealand Hospital near Copenhagen, Denmark. Shaped like a four-leaf clover, the four-story facility keeps a low profile within its wooded location. Each spacious ward of the hospital, flooded with natural light, will offer views of the surrounding forest.



“Herzog & de Meuron have designed a patient-centered hospital — a beautiful, healing and functional building that supports our patients’ recovery in the best possible way,” hospital director Bente Ouro Rorth said in a statement.



Herzog & de Meuron will design the hospital in collaboration with Danish firm Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects. The team prevailed over two other shortlisted firms, C. F Moller and BIG, in the final phase of the design competition.
