At the size of a small provincial town, the new University Hospital Aarhus (DNU) is a leading hospital based in Central Jutland, Denmark and its expansion will cover a 1,200,000m2 site. Guaranteeing the successful navigation of this immense site has been a major project for Modulex working in conjunction with The DNU Group of Consultants, led by C.F. Møller.

The hospital operates as a university hospital, regional centre and the main hospital for the local residents of Aarhus city and the island of Samso, and had to remain fully functional throughout the development period. A consortium of architecture and engineering companies have been undertaking the project including C.F. Møller who had responsibility for the implementation of the interiors including wayfinding and signage.

Hospitals have very specific requirements in terms of wayfinding with intense demands for supporting a diverse range of users. The employees group is large with over 10,000 staff and complex including doctors, nursing staff, transport staff and cleaning staff whilst the composition of the visitor group is also varied including both visitors and patients typically from a wide social background and age group. This broad spectrum of users puts heavy demands on the wayfinding system.  

In order to help patients to find their way to the right place at the right time, the signage has been designed in accordance with an overall strategy that makes orientation easy, using, for example, internal and external colour schemes.

The Via Interior components have been developed in co-operation with C.F. Møller and are available as suspended, wall-mounted and projecting with both illuminated and non-illuminating options. Via Interior enables a level of flexibility suited to the future demands of the hospital, and can be easily dismounted and moved without having to remove the base of the sign.
