Hvidovre Health Centre

  • Location Copenhagen, Denmark,
  • Type Clinic,
  • Nordic — Office of Architecture transformed a government building into a light and spacious treatment center for Hvidovre Health Centre in Copenhagen, Denmark.

    The post office at Hvidovrevej has been converted into a health centre containing treatment rooms, training facilities and offices. Nordic’s ambition was to create an environment that ensured interdisciplinary interaction while remaining open, accessible and welcoming for all visitors.

    We are very happy to have received Hvidovre municipality’s Building prize 2019 for our project. Extract from the jury’s report: “.. simple and well proportioned facade and roof adds valuable daylight and enhances the buildings’ bold and robust character..”⁠

    Visitors have a clear visual connection to the green surroundings and will also benefit from excellent daylight, creating the ultimate environment for a thriving health centre. The building has restored its original position as an important part of the green park, establishing better physical connections by removing fences and making outside areas open for all.
