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.
