RUBOW arkitekter wins new nursing and rehabilitation center in Humlebæk, Denmark

Nursing and Rehabilitation Center

The jury was in full agreement about appointing VIBO winning team with RUBOW arkitekter as consultants and sub-consultants BDO, SPJ advisiors, and Balslev Consulting Engineers. The winning project concerns the construction of a new nursing and rehabilitation center in Humlebæk South – a new development area in Fredensborg Municipality, Denmark.

Nursing and Rehabilitation Center

The design of the new nursing and rehabilitation center is inspired by evidence-based research on healing architecture. Using architectural design elements such as light, scale, tactility and spatial relations, a simple conceptualisation has evolved into a pleasant and considerate atmosphere, combining the site’s character and inherent qualities.

“Hedgerow Gardens” is an empathetic, poetic and functional project exemplifying modern welfare architecture.
The hedgerow cutting through the site is the main strength and stamina of the project. Public functions are arranged as distinctive, compact and welcoming, facing the city entrance, while more private housing sections are broken up into smaller units arranged with small displacements. All are aligned by hedges, thus creating intimate outdoor spaces with great variation.

The new framework will ensure:
A homely environment
A safe and familiar place to live and (re)gain strength
A good place to work
An asset for the surrounding neighbourhood
Nature and sensory experiences for both residents and other users
The winning proposal includes the following:
• A grand total of 6500 m2 divided into 30 care units, 20 rehabilitation homes complimented with training facilities, recreational spaces, a daycare center, administration and a medical center.
• A biologically integrated landscape design that respects eg. fauna passages and future living conditions for amphibians/bats. The building is surrounded by nature, enriching the sensory experiences of the coming users and residents.
• Energy and (indoor)climate optimised building design. Additionally, WSUD (Water Sensitive Urban Design or Local Rainwater Harvesting) is incorporated in both housing and public buildings.
• A clear and function-based hierarchy, assuring a natural work flow, a simple and easy-to-perceive wayfinding and a safe environment for the residents.
