The new district heating plant of chiusa looks like a big copper wing that comes out of the terrain.
The skewed roof surfaces create one dynamic volume, which seems like a shim between the viaduct and the old Gröden´s train line carriage house. From the main building’s entry you arrive directly to the visitors area, where a big glass wall gives visitors the view into the boiler house. To the west there is a wood-chips storage, to the east the main co-generation units; one stair goes to the first floor and creates a connection to the administration and toilet facilities.

The Nedisco factory is one of the most prominent buildings in Venlo. The conversion and restoration of this national monument forms the crux of the Maaswaard Plan, the urban redevelopment to the south of the inner city. The complex – built from concrete, steel and glass – is an exceptional example of industrial architecture, which can be accredited to The International Style with the foundational theory of air, space, and light.

The Havelwerke are a place for originals since over a hundred years. On the site of a former prussian powder factory the users have always produced, collected, preserved, presented their goods. The tradition of this special place is now the studio’s guideline. Pott Architects developed a masterplan to design the industrial park homogeneously.

The Monteroni D’Arbia former tobacco factory area is an opportunity to take up the challenge of a historic building of great physical, social and economic significance. Important in both physical and social terms, this area was a focal point in community life for the whole town and restoration work on it aims to rebuild a fragment of social fabric which is to be entrusted with a strategic re-appropriation role of the town’s physical and social dimension.

They used general products and uploaded all drawings to the website. Therefore, these designs might also be able to call the “open source furniture” so to speak. Because these designs enable everyone to make functional office furnitures inexpensively
