Helsingborgs Sjukhusområde; Publication on Glass & Fasade Magazine
FEB. 25, 2019
Happy to publish our work for the Helsingborgs Sjukhusområde on Glass & Fasade magazine (http://glassogfasade-digital.no/dm/glassogfasade-1-19/32/)
This article describes a joint effort between LINK Arkitektur and Inform Design to create well day-lit Atria spaces that simultaneously minimize overheating risk and improve the patients’ experience.
Our contribution included:
(a) selectively place frit in the Atria facades: Work towards an elaborated “tailored façade design” depending on the amount of solar exposure the different areas of the façade experience.
(b) properly integrate reflectors: Convert the rather dark and dull atria to actively daylit environments where rays of beam solar radiation will cast along the façades and the ground of the atria, moving over the course of the day.
