Viken Psychiatric Center is a place for the treatment of mental health. Three yards are connected to a long-cultivated park. The complex holds a clinic, congress-center, dwellings, and secondary functions. There is a capacity for 40 long-term patients. The building’s main construction is cross-laminated timber (CLT) with untreated wood-cladding. The glass-areas ensure good outside-inside interaction. The contemplative landscape and nature in the north of Norway surrounds the Viken center and provide a calm setting for recovering.
