In early 2017, the new facilities at Vejle Psychiatric Hospital in Denmark were ready to open the doors to patients and employees.
The building is placed in Vejle Ådal, and the beautiful, natural surroundings is an essential part of the architectural design. The 17,000 m2 building has two levels and is located close to the Vejle main hospital.
Psychiatric patients’ easy access and view to the nature is beneficial for their healing process, hence why the structure is built around a series of open, recreational courtyards. This allows plenty of light and fresh air to enter the rooms, common rooms and corridors.
The corridors are closely linked to the wards and other common areas, and in the design process focus was therefore to create a comfortable and fresh indoor climate in the corridors.
Single-sided natural ventilation was chosen for the corridors via highly placed automated windows.
The corridors are divided into 26 ventilation zones, which are regulated individually by a total of 170 window actuators (85 windows). The corridors’ need for ventilation varies throughout the day, which the control system accounts for. It opens and closes the windows to certain positions based on the temperature in each zone.
