The Urban Hospice
NORD Architects
Copenhagen, Denmark

The notion that architecture can have a positive and therapeutic effect on palliative patients is the central ambition of NORD Architect’s recently completed hospice in central Copenhagen. The design sensitively negotiates its dense urban context with a need for spaces of calm, tranquility and positivity, and the resulting Urban Hospice is an uplifting example of the value that thoughtful and considered architecture can bring to both the city and its inhabitants.

Villaverde Municipal Health Care Center
Estudio Entresitio
Madrid, Spain

Villaverde’s Health Care Center by Madrid-based architectural office estudio.entresitio is the third building in a set of “triplet” healthcare centers built and repeated almost identically. Breaking with the standard single-building commission, the Healthcare Center has now been recreated three times with small variations. Villaverde’s Center is certainly one fine result.
