WKK, Utrecht

To increase the capacity of two existing power stations on an industrial site in Utrecht called the Uithof, a new building (6000m3) appeared. The size and construction of the building are largely determined by the technical requirements. A skin of self-supporting Corten-steel is folded over the machinery and the giant filters and dampers and keeps the noise pollution to a minimum. Its silhouette differs according to one's perspective, lending the building a sculptural force in the landscape.
