Conversion of Jurkovič Heating Plant National Cultural Monument, Bratislava

The solution highlights many historical construction details, the original rugged columns and especially the dominant three hoppers, for which the reconstruction created an original representative space with materials in their original “roughness” and colour. New added constructions, new inserted materials with their distinguishable structure (added brick walls from the original facade and walls more than 31 thousand bricks, heraklith wall cladding, original concrete structure ..) and various current already modern technical details are legible and present the basic principle of “truthfulness”. In the mirroring of the new modern simple glass facade with the principle of an inserted ‘building in the building”, the two architectures communicate each other. At least one of the three typical industrial features can be seen from each place of the Heating Plant, typical industrial high divided windows, walls made of original bricks, or reinforced concrete structures of three hoppers.
