Patient hotel - Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen
There is a lot of focus on Rigshospitalet's new patient hotel and administration department, as the building facing Amorparken and Juliane Maries Vej is one of the primary points of contact between the general public and Rigshospitalet. The sculptural facade has therefore been designed to highlight the building's architectural expression, and the building stands as a landmark in the hospital grounds.
The patient hotel and administration building comprises six floors and a basement. The building consists of two independent units, the patient hotel and the administration department, one on top of the other as two opposite-facing U-shapes. This creates a communal area in the middle, an atrium linking the two units, spanning all floors of the building and topped by a glass roof.
The patient hotel, which occupies the lower three floors of the building, has 75 ensuite rooms, reception, administration, restaurant, preparation kitchen and staff facilities. The administration department occupies the top three floors of the building, with the top floor mainly used for hospitality.
The building is a Class 2020 building. Three prime contracts, consisting of shell /first fix, second fix and technical installations, have completed the project.
