The new university hospital is not a traditional institutional construction; it is a friendly, informal place with open, well-structured surroundings which present a welcoming aspect to patients and their families.
Akershus University Hospital has been designed to emphasize security and clarity in experientially rich surroundings, where everyday functions and well-known materials are integrated into the hospital’s structure.

It was determined in the early 2000’s that a new 40,000 square foot Campus Center would be built north of the existing gymnasium at the intersection of C and Second Streets near the center of the campus.
The Campus Center is viewed as instrumental in consolidating disparate student life activities across the campus, and equally key to increasing recruitment and retention of students and faculty on campus.

The design’s interconnected forms include a nine-level bridge which spans 35 meters and connects a student apartment on one side and a three-level building on the other. A higher volume cantilevers from the bridge building, offering panoramic views of the harbor. The layout of the forms is quite flexible as users can isolate one specific area if needed.
