Awarded for Design and Healthcare Architecture
The new laboratory building, Biomedicum, is to be the powerhouse for research at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, one of the world's leading medical universities, known amongst other things for selecting the recipients of the Nobel Prize in medicine and physiology.
Biomedicum consists of four blocks, with laboratories built around an eight-storey high atrium wrapped in a transparent double-shell façade. A single unifying environment for future research, with ultra-flexibly equipped laboratories and office facilities that will act as a catalyst for cross-cutting collaboration.
The new centre has already won important awards. In August 2019 it received a CODA Award in the Healthcare category and in March it was awarded “Årets Bygge”, Building of the Year. Biomedicum also received an honorable mention from “Glaspriset” for integrating art in the building.
”Biomedicum is an amazing building that provides the conditions for world-class cooperation and research! We are very proud of the finished project and the prestigious award!”, says Vendela Martinac, Head of Stockholm Branch and Architect at C.F. Møller.
C.F. Møller Architects are forerunners when it comes to research and healthcare buildings. Examples of this is the Maersk Tower, a research complex for the University of Copenhagen which has also received many awards, the Aarhus University Hospital in Denmark, Haraldsplass in Norway and projects in progress such as the Springfield Hospital in England, Tampere in Finland, Danderyd in Sweden and an expansion of the listed and iconic University Hospital RWTH in Aachen, Germany.
