The iconic boiler house is rearranged and renovated, with rooms for laboratory, laundry and changing rooms, offices and a canteen on the upper floors. The current adjacent silo platform is replaced by a new energy House, maintaining the front three silos.
To prevent fragmentation of building volumes and neutralize the difference in height between the existing boiler house and the new volume of the energy House a whole bound element is made with canopy around a large overhang. By this a balanced composition is created with a striking character.
On the roof solar panels are placed behind the canopy.
