Stunning Images Of The Psychiatric Clinic In Greenland

Scandinavian architecture firm White Arkitekter has unveiled plans to build a pale yellow psychiatric clinic in Nuuk, Greenland, which will frame views of the surrounding arctic landscape.

It will be situated just a short distance from the capital’s centre, sat beside the main entrance of the existing Dronning Ingrid hospital. The 3,300-square-metre building will also overlook a Greenlandic fjord, providing views of the country’s icy waters and snowy cliff peaks.

The building strikes the perfect balance between a calm, healing and trustworthy atmosphere and the natural landscape and the existing hospital facilities. Echoing the materials and colours of Nuuk – where hospitals are traditionally yellow – the architecture cuts an instantly recognisable figure from both near and afar.

Daylight is abundant in all patient rooms thanks to the large windows and generous height of this part of the building. Looking out the windows, patients have views of the dramatic landscape and the fjord. The rooms are spacious and offer good internal overview of the premises to provide safe surroundings for both staff and patients. Wood is the primary material used here; apart from being a long-lasting solution, wood is proven to have a calming and stress-reducing effect.
