Haraldsplass Hospital in Bergen, Norway, by C.F. Møller
June 15, 2012

C.F. Moller Haraldsplass Hospital Bergen NorwayA whole new kind of hospital - that is how the jury described the winning proposal by C. F. Møller Architects for a new 10,000 m2 ward building for Haraldsplass Hospital in Bergen, Norway. Gone are the traditional hospital corridors, to be replaced by open common areas and efficient logistics.
Haraldsplass Hospital was built in 1986 and has approximately 184 beds. The new building will cover 10,000 m2 and give the hospital a further 108 beds on three storeys. There will also be new underground parking facilities for approximately 400 cars.
The new building will lie at the foot of the Ulriken mountain, with the river Møllendalselven in front.
The jury praised the proposal’s innovative approach to hospital design: "Here the patient is placed in the centre, and given a place in a varied and beautiful landscape. The drawings show attractive new experiences for staff and patients alike, while the needs of relatives are accommodated in a beautiful and well-nuanced arrivals area."
In stark contrast to traditional hospital buildings, there are no long corridors. The wards are located around two large covered atria, which provide the setting for two different kinds of common areas: a public arrivals area with a reception, café, shop and seating area, and a more private space for patients and their guests only.
