The Laboratory and Logistics Building at Bispebjerg Hospital is a research building that, with advanced laboratories, creates new opportunities for research. The building is the first important step in the realization of a comprehensive expansion plan for  New Hospital and New Psychiatry Bispebjerg  and will in the future play a central role for hospital and psychiatry at Bispebjerg.

The Laboratory and Logistics building houses 9,500 m² of joint research facilities, including test rooms, generic laboratories and research facilities for all research areas at Bispebjerg Hospital. The building also houses offices and a warehouse with associated logistics and warehousing functions.

The new Laboratory and Logistics building is in close collaboration with Martin Nyrop’s listed buildings and green areas from 1913. With the building’s simplified and precise geometry, respect for the site’s historical context is shown. The building’s internal spacious context is designed in interaction and respect with the protected green areas, and thus creates a dialogue between outside and inside – between building and landscape.

The wide staircase that winds up through the center of the building is the backbone of the building, and functions as a social movement space that creates coherence and overview. The staircase and the central stairwell create interaction and function as a life-giving axis, which with a generous daylight intake provides access to the individual research units and at the same time offers pockets for stays and informal meetings.

The building has a servicing and outward-looking function and its various activities, including research, are made visible through larger glass sections and help to make the building appear alive and active at all times of the day and thus contribute to the area’s core narrative as a vital and innovative knowledge environment. The building is built in an anodised dark surface that highlights a modern and relevant design that interacts with the surrounding listed buildings.

The Laboratory and Logistics building brings together laboratory functions, solves technical and infrastructural challenges and forms the framework for a dynamic and well-functioning workplace. The building brings together many different users and functions, which is why it was crucial for Mikkelsen Arkitekter to prepare a clear and distinct layout in the building, which met all users. As the building functions as both a goods receipt and a logistics building, receiving daily heavy truck traffic and deliveries of goods on the ground floor but at the same time housing research and laboratory facilities, with a sensitive work environment for researchers, the building’s program places very special demands on sectioning, vibration sensitive equipment and sound level. Mikkelsen Arkitekter solved these challenges by optimally disposing of the building’s program.
