The children and youth hospice, Strandbakkehuset, has been designed as the first newly built hospice of its kind in Denmark – with the overall aim of providing space for life, play and alleviation, thereby offering a vital home for the children, young people and their families in a vulnerable time of their lives. Quality of life is thus a keyword in the design of the hospice, which contains four family residences, a staff section and several shared functions – beautifully situated atop a slope right in the middle of the scenic nature along the coastline of Djursland.
