ArchiMed is an analysis and consultancy company; specialized in design and architecture of modern healthcare systems. Based in Copenhagen the company is rooted within the Scandinavian tradition of architecture. The company's front figure is Pernille Weiss Terkildsen, who for 20 years has been engaged in the hospital business-practically, politically and not least architecturally.
ArchiMed's paradigm is to help improve the healthcare systems of the future for patients as well as for employees; a vision shared by four employees and the 10 affiliated specialists. Evidence-based design is at the very core of our consultancy service through processes that continuously promote high levels of user involvement and multidisciplinarity.
We acknowledge the healthcare system as a complex and intricate system that no single discipline can claim to fully grasp on its own. True innovation of a healthcare system occurs when several diverse disciplines interact-and ArchiMed specializes in optimizing this interaction. Archi+Med is seeing architecture as medicine-and it is our vision that healing architecture should characterize the buildings of the future healthcare systems.
