The new and reformed Sankt Hans Hospital is going to be Roskilde’s healing, recreational backyard.
History and heritage
Sankt Hans has been a psychiatric hospital for more than 200 years and is now facing a transformation into a vibrant urban area. Soon the area will accommodate both housing, businesses, public and cultural activities as well as large recreational areas.
BRIQ is developing and implementing the urban life strategy for the area, which builds on the amazing qualities lodged in the historic site, the cultural heritage of the buildings and the core values embedded in the urban development plan.
We at BRIQ are responsible for programming and developing concepts for a number of historic buildings in the area. The historic buildings will be brought to life in their new urban context through concepts specifically developed for Sankt Hans, and more importantly the concepts will be curated bearing in mind the possibility for cross-cutting collaborations and synergies between the operators. An overall ambition is that new extroverted concepts at Sankt Hans will accelerate and continuous support the urban community.
BRIQ innovates and develops new mixed concepts at Sankt Hans, which respond to megatrends in our time while at the same time capture the history and potential of the historic site. Health, nature, and community are key words.
