Grangemouth Renewable Energy Plant in Dundee, UK by Gordon Murray Architects

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

The design draws inspiration from the uses adjacent to the proposed site, container storage yards, in order to reflect the industrial character of the surrounding area and create a clear visual connection with Scotland’s largest container terminal. The design would function at long range as a distinct element within the setting of the Firth of Forth and within the context of the Helix park project. At the medium range, careful manipulation of the contrast between solid, void and transparency can help define the massing of the Biomass Renewable Energy Plant in an appropriate manner, while at close range, the design of the surface texture should be considered carefully to create an architectural response which is robust and appropriate for the setting.

  • Architects: Gordon Murray Architects
  • Project: Grangemouth Renewable Energy Plant
  • Location: Dundee, UK
