The hospital has a clear and comprehensible structure. Externally, it is surrounded by its characteristic circle of woods, which provides the complex with a natural definition in relation to its surroundings. Internally, the hospital is built up around a common two-storey foyer which provides access to the wards and treatment units. The clear structure and low-rise construction – the entire hospital is on just two levels – makes it easy for patients, staff and visitors to find their way around. Between the buildings, unpretentious and inviting courtyards and garden spaces encourage people to spend time outdoors.
Four artists, Ib Geertzen, Paul Gadegaard, Albert Mertz and Jørn Larsen, have decorated the long foyer with striking works of art. The variety of different shapes and colours makes the complex’s "main street" a vibrant and exciting place to be.
