Research has shown that daylight and access to nature has a positive impact when recovering from illness. People simply get well faster if they can look out to a green area and if they have access to stay and exercise in nature. The design of the house and landscape revolves around this knowledge. Lush courtyards ensure a view of greenery from every room.
An integrated path system creates accessibility in the beautiful surrounding landscape with a circular bridge that allows for direct contact with the lake. Elements placed in the park supports the rehabilitation process and can at the same time be used by the locals as fitness and play equipment.
Helsingør Healthcare Center is a place of community, and not just a place you go when sick. The entrance courtyard and park area connect the public functions of the area and the commercial center. The healthcare center becomes a part of everyday life in the local community.
Today the area is dominated by large parking areas and the nature area isn’t an integrated part of the town. With this project the green area is transformed into a park and becomes accessible for the locals and the visitor to the many public and commercial functions.
