Umspannwerk Nord

The project entails a substation featuring three transformers. The building is constructed using reinforced concrete with colored exposed concrete, drawing inspiration from the design of the existing gas heating plant. The cantilevered section of the building houses the network control room, accessible via its dedicated staircase and containing offices and related ancillary spaces.

The facade design of this section, distinguished by a corten steel facade, sets it apart from the rest of the structure. Positioned to face east towards the public space, it appears to float above the street.
