The new proton treatment center and clinic is part of Norway’s National hospital for cancer treatment, Oslo University Hospital. Oslo University Hospital is a highly specialized cancer research facility and hospital. Henning Larsen designed the Norwegian Radium Hospital finished in 2007 and a research facility on the same premises finished in 2009. The new proton treatment center and clinic building are located on the same site.
”It is a unique opportunity to design a new building in such close proximity to an existing design of ours. Due to our previous assignments on the site, Henning Larsen has unique insights to and experience with the area that the project will benefit from, particularly in creating a strong coherence between the buildings,” Partner at Henning Larsen, Kasper Kyndesen, says.
Complex technology demands complex architecture. At high energy, protons can destroy cancer cells with a precisely targeted dose that reaches the infected cells and spares healthy tissue.
We are designing the proton center and a clinic building consisting of a bed wing and a treatment wing, containing, among other things, 155 single-bedded rooms with baths and ten operating rooms.
The project is worth an estimated 4.720 billion Norwegian kroner. Henning Larsen is working together with Norconsult (main contractor), Sykehusbygg HF, Oslo University Hospital, Helse Sør-ØST RHF, Momentum Architects, AART Architects, Bygganalyse AS and Søren Jensen AS, and Scott Tallon Walker Architects (STW).
