Social Psychiatric Center Orion

Project Description: 

The Social Psychiatric Center Orion in Hillerød is a home for adults whose lives are affected by severe symptoms of mental illness and psychosis. The center comprises of 38 housing units, a hostel and a cultural center with a café, gym, computer cafe, workshops, Music room, etc.

Orion's management is very conscious and aware that the physical environment is vital for the residents and staff’s wellbeing. There are ongoing efforts to enhance and adapt both in-door and outdoor spaces functionally and architecturally (form, materials / surfaces and light). The primary goal is to create an inspiring, sensory-stimulating, safe and pleasant atmosphere.

With this in mind, AG5 has renewed and enriched the Culture House café and associated production kitchen, with emphasis on lighting (day and artificial light), surfaces and furnishings. In addition, AG5 has transformed existing hostel rooms into larger apartments with adjoining community facilities.
