SPINN Arkitekter and Architectopia conducted an internal design and programming workshop yesterday to kick off the design process for our new healthcare facility in Bjørkelangen. With a wide range of functions ranging from emergency-room to elderly housing, doctor's offices and a day center for dementia - the program is complex and exciting! Solving the complexities of the program, while also creating a site and environmentally sensitive building is the kind of task that we love.
Architectopia presented some excellent environmental analysis of the site and we wrestled with questions about how to site the building in a way that is optimal for all the program elements.
We look forward to delivering the sketch design phase in early July. Meanwhile, back to work!
