The report describes the project of a fictional hospice for children located on the outskirts of Holstebro, Denmark. The project is based on an open architectural competition from Bee Breeders, with the goal of gathering ideas on how to design good children’s hospices.

The project showcases how to work with the method of the integrated design process by actively implementing aspects of social and environmental sustainability as well as technical aspects such as indoor climate throughout the project.

The project focuses on creating a comfortable safe haven for terminally ill children and their relatives, providing relief during their last time together. In addition, the project has also investigated how to minimize the global warming potential of the building through modular building and design for disassembly principles to reduce the CO2 footprint for the hospice and potentially for future buildings.
