New images of Vardheim Healthcare Centre by 3RW arkitekter and NORD architects, Norway
New images released of the New Vardheim Health Centre in Randaberg, on the West coast of Norway. Designed by Bergen-based 3RW arkitekter and Copenhagen-based NORD architects, the project is inspired by traditional Norwegian hamlets.
3RW arkitekter from Bergen and NORD architects from Copenhagen won the competition in 2013 for a new healthcare centre in Randaberg, Norway, which is designed to be like a modern Norwegian hamlet. New images of the project have just been released as the building’s groundbreaking has begun. This is the first of four construction phases, which is set to be completed by 2019.
The New Vardheim Health Centre in Randaberg is inspired by the old type of Norwegian vernacular building typology called a grend, where a small cluster of houses creates a micro community. The centre will accommodate various healthcare programmes and, with its green courtyards, create a green walking path between the town and the facing mountain.
With the existing buildings on site, the centre will constitute a unique architectural interaction and an innovative concept for contemporary institutional buildings.
