LINK Arkitektur will be designing the new Oslo University Hospital2020-12-16
On November 27, 2020 the Board of South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority, initiated the work for the developed design, for Norway’s new national hospital, Nye Rikshospitalet in Oslo. Along with our partners at Multiconsult, Bølgeblikk Arkitekter, Fabel Arkitekter og Erichsen & Horgen AS, LINK Arkitektur has been elected as architects for this exciting project.
In August, the South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority and Multiconsult signed the contract, which includes a revision of the preliminary design for the new Rigshospital in Oslo. The agreement also includes an option for the detailed design and follow-up during the construction phase.
- We are proud that we, alongside with our partners, have been selected for this task, which is one of Europe's most exciting hospital projects. LINK contributes half of the architectural resources as well as the overall responsibility for the landscape architecture. We are already deeply involved in the adaptation of the project and look forward to further developing the collaboration with the client organisation, says Mette Dan-Weibel, Director for Healthcare at LINK Arkitektur.
A long-standing collaboration
LINK Arkitektur and Multiconsult continue the collaboration with partners from previous projects such as a new hospital in Drammen, the Tønsberg Project at the hospital in Vestfold and Campus Ås. The common denominator for these projects is that they have all been sizeable and complex, with a large focus on responding to the needs of the users in a good, efficient way.
