Martina Hansen's HospitalNext →
Martina Hansen's Hospital in Bærum Municipality is owned by the foundation Martina Hansen's Hospital AS, and it is a specialised hospital in orthopaedic surgery, rheumatic surgery and rheumatology. The hospital wished to extend the building stock with a new annex in order to increase the number of patients, streamline operations and adapt existing areas to a modern hospital. The original buildings from 1936 with outdoor facilities are regulated as a consideration zone for cultural environment conservation, and this was an important premise in the project development. The project is regulated in detail with high requirements for design and material quality.

The hospital is extended with a new wing, and the existing main building is remodelled for adaptation to new areas and changed operations. Outdoor areas are adapted to the new situation and developed according to the regulatory provisions.
All existing functions of the hospital have greater capacity thanks to interior remodelling, reorganising and extended area in the new annex. For the departments to become functional, it was important to create seamless transitions and the shortest possible working distance between existing buildings and the new annex. Therefore, the same roof heights were chosen for the new building as in the existing building from 1936, and this placed great demands on the planning and execution of technical facilities. The existing green structure is preserved, and the necessary interference with the existing landscape is kept to a minimum in order to preserve the green character of the forest and landscape around the hospital.
The project is developed together with the hospital in an interactive process where the restructuring of operations and design of the areas were important topics. There has also been close collaboration with the cultural heritage department of Viken County Municipality and the building affairs department of Bærum Municipality in order to meet the requirements of the detailed regulation.
