Location: Kolding, Denmark
Architect: Schmidt/Hammer/Lassen Architects
You don't often think of hospitals as pillars of interesting design, but the firm Schmidt/Hammer/Lassen takes the design of a new hospital in Denmark to the next level. Because this was a reconstruction project, the details of the structure are based, in part, on the surrounding architecture, landscape, and buildings on site. The new design totally reshapes the identity of the building while retaining the essential aspects of its original structure.
