Hospice Djursland is first and foremost a building within a landscape. No matter where you go in the building - the reception area, the garden of the senses, the orangery, the atriums, the staff room, the lounge, the reflection room or the patient rooms - the beautiful landscape is always present.

We have aimed to create a very humane building; by which we mean a building which is not an institution, but rather a home which provides adequate physical and mental space for those who will live there in their final time, as well as for their relatives and the staff.

The common materials used are copper, oak and glass, which interact beautifully and naturally with the landscape and provide a sense of warmth in the rooms.
