The 25th and 26th storeys of Herlev Hospital are now in use. VLA and AJC were the architects for the project, designing interior fit-out for use by the Danish Institute for Medical Simulation. This was a challenging task both technically and architecturally and required special insight into high-rise construction and hospital fit-out.
The new institute offers on-the-job training and research for health specialists. Instruction is given in simulation rooms, with panoramic views from the windows. On a clear day, there are fantastic views out as far as Kronborg and Sweden. The colour scheme of the rooms follows the strong, bold colours that Poul Gernes originally set out in his guidelines, and in addition to the teaching rooms, there are a canteen area, offices and conference room.
This architecturally striking hospital was originally designed by a consortium of architects: Gehrdt Bornebush, Max Brüel and Jørgen Selchau.
