Hjúkrunarheimilið Árborg is and elderly care home located in south Iceland. The intention of the architectural design is to form a homey atmosphere with an emphasis on the building occupants and their well being. 

 

Therefore, the lighting goal is to provide health improvement and a sense of well-being to residents, but also to optimize the performance of the medical staff. Meanwhile, to provide the staff with a pleasant experience during and after the working hours, by reducing the clinical feeling and creating a more homey environment through the application of biologically effective lighting solutions. 

The design approach follows the criteria and requirements of environmental classification system BREEAM. The project aims to achieve a rating of 'Very Good'.
