Hospital Karsudden

Urbio: Biophilic values ​​and the natural environment’s positive impact on health have been the starting points for the shape of the outdoor environment at the extensions of the hospital Karsudden in Katrineholm, Sweden. The forensic psychiatric healthcare institution has received several new walkways, focusing on recreational values, and a new entrance square. The arboretum square located at the main entrance consists of a mix of tree species that – together with the planted paving joints, playful tree guards and water element – give the site a scenic identity. The entrance has been converted from paved surfaces to a green square where vehicular traffic to and from the hospital has been preserved but is now secondary to pedestrian outdoor activities and values.
