65 000 sq m with light from Fagerhult

  • Location: Linköping

Linköping University Hospital is one of the largest hospitals in Sweden and has more than 5000 employees. The hospital is undergoing renovation and new buildings are being added. The first phase of this large Health and Care project is the new building of 65 000 square meters called FUS1. It comprises a hospital with 165 inpatient beds in single rooms. Fagerhult supplied the final luminaires to this project in late 2015. The complete reconstruction is planned to be finished​​ in 2021 and the next phase is called FUS2 where Fagerhult is also engaged.

The focus of the project was patient lead, therefore an environment with many open spaces has been created, where patients can interact. The receptions are located on the first floor, to protect patient privacy and to increase accessibility for the visitors. Other important considerations have been to optimize the energy consumption and to create a good indoor environment for both personnel and patients alike. There has also been a wish to take advantage of natural light as much as possible.
