The psychiatric hospital will together with the somatic hospital constitute a campus for health. Main access to the two hospitals is from a large plaza centrally located in this campus.

The intention of the project is to protect the environment at the psychiatric hospital from the rest of the hospital. The access building with the general functions like lobby, café and library are articulated as a protecting but transparent unit facing the plaza and park landscape in the interior and core of the hospital.

Via the plaza there is access to the residential units, the houses in the village, and via the park landscape out “in the world” towards Slagelse.
