The extension of Helsingborg Hospital is designed as a single building, whose architecture relates both to the existing hospital and the surrounding city. The building houses three areas of activity: the out-patient clinic and laboratories in the lower and compact levels of the building, while the top levels containing the psychiatric ward open up to a more transparent structure. Key to the whole design has been flexibility, a clear layout, variety, human scale, green courtyards and optimal conditions for daylight.
