Hospital landscapes in many parts of the world have improved due to the documented restorative and healing benefits gained from many researches (Hartig and Staats, (2003), Ulrich (2002), Shumaker and Pequegnat (1989), Gierlach- Spriggs et. al., (1998) and Kaplan and Kaplan (1989). Research has shown that well designed environment is significant for healing processes. Clare Cooper & Marni Barnes (1999) had provided the base for the design of restorative outdoor spaces in healthcare for designers in healthcare setting. Spending time in a hospital as patient, visitor, or staff can be a stressful experience (Marcus, 2000). Access to gardens and nature can enhance people’s ability to deal with stress and thus potentially improve health outcomes (Marcus, 2000). Study by Ulrich (1984) have shown that interaction with nature improves our quality of life by lowering stress levels, muscle tension, and blood pressure, and by raising our tolerance to pain. Ulrich (1984) also reported that patients who had a view of trees had shorter hospital stays, took less pain killers, had a minor number of complications with the surgery, and had fewer negative comments on their nurse reports compared to the patients with a view of a brick wall. The purpose of this paper is to explore garden designs in hospitals and to examine the role of physical environment in hospital settings in a Danish context. Denmark has a well-developed public health service system which, among other things, includes specialists, hospitals, home care, visiting nurses and children’s dental care. The health service is based on principles of equal access to health services for all citizens. A survey from year 2002 indicates that satisfaction amongst 90% of patients with the Danish hospitals has increased over the last few years. ( Following that, a study on the outdoor space of the hospitals in Denmark is needed as a growing awareness has developed in recent years in the healthcare community of the need to create functionally efficient and hygienic environments that also have pleasant, stress reducing characteristics. There is mounting evidence that gardens function are especially effective and beneficial settings with respect to fostering restoration for stressed patients, family members, and staff (Ulrich, 1999). The study on the selected garden hospitals will explore these possibilities. Five cases were selected around Denmark based on criteria in relation to the landscape design and accessibility to users, i.e; patients, visitors and staff. The results gained from these Danish examples will provide an understanding of how gardens play a role in hospitals and, efforts that are required in order to create restorative healthcare settings. The analysis was carried out at Rigshospitalet, Hvidovre, Bispebjerg, Aalborg Medicinehuset and Århus Universitetshospital. The hospitals were selected based on a few types of landscape concepts to give different perceptions in the garden designs such as roof top garden, atrium type garden, spacious main focal garden and small pavilions garden areas, among others. The initial result discovered that design elements and activities provided in the garden setting should take into considerations all types of users and activities in order to provide potentially restorative environments in the hospital areas.
