Laboratories, Bodø

Nordlandssykehuset HF

6.500 m2

Completed 2006

This building contains all the hospitals laboratory functions and the new department for radiation therapy.

The facades are constructed in a pale granite with glass above a plinth in black granite. The lighter volume contains laboratories over 4 floors.
The laboratories are stacked vertically towards a large shared glazed area, which contains an open stair combining pathology, microbiology, clinical chemistry, immunology and the blood bank. This solution arose from the clients wish for daylight to workplaces  in combination with internal traffic routes.
Safety cabinets and analysis machines are placed deeper towards the central core with storerooms and service areas.
