BDP in final two for Danish hospital job

  • Comment

BDP is down to the last two in the final stage of a contest to design a new hospital in Denmark

Eight teams were shortlisted in November for the high profile Bispebjerg New Hospital and Psychiatry Unit competition but only BDP and local company Drees & Sommer Nordic still remain in the running.

The studios will now work with the hospital management on their designs until May. A winner will be announced in June.

Janne Elsborg, chief executive of Bispebjerg and Frederiksberg Hospitals, said: ‘It has been a challenge to establish openness towards the city, cohesiveness with the historic buildings as well as an effective and future oriented general hospital and psychiatric facility. This [is what] the two winning teams solved best.’

Andrew Smith, head of healthcare at BDP said: ‘Danish hospital projects are, in our eyes, the best in the world right now because of their high design ambitions.’

He added: ‘The project at Bispebjerg is a unique opportunity to work with other landscape architecture and historic buildings.’

The project includes the design of a new hospital, psychiatry unit, landscaping and traffic management scheme.

The original shortlist:

Arkitema K/S (Copenhagen)
Atkins Danmark A/S (Copenhagen)
BDP (Sheffield)
Brunet-Saunier Architecture (Paris) with Agence Ter (Paris)
Cubo Arkitekter A/S (Aarhus)
Drees & Sommer Nordic A/S (Copenhagen)
Mecanoo (Delft)
Venhoeven CS architecture+urbanism (Amsterdam) with OKRA landscape architects (Utrecht)
