This report describes the process which led to the design of a hospice building, located in Silkeborg’s woodland. The report shows how to work through the integrated design process led by the program and vision for the details of an outline. Focus point for construction of the project has been in the comfort and indoor climate, with an emphasis on daylight and views, and its impact on users of the hospice. The project’s vision is based on three types of users, patients, relatives and employees, all to be given priority and have good conditions and facilities. The design is dedicated to provide users with some good and positive experiences, and uses the landscape and architecture to achieve this.
