Tenaris Thermoelectric Power Plant, Dalmine, Italy – Caruso e Torricella Architetti

Tenaris Thermoelectric Power Plant Dalmine, Italy

new power plant and subsidiary building
size sqm 5300
status completed 2007

The new power plant is inside the Dalmine?s steel mill industrial area, close to the former ?30?s power plant.

The architectural ensemble, dismissed but relatively in good shape, is monumental and the new power plant project wants, even using less noble materials than bricks and stone, to continue that tradition of esthetical care that connotated even industrial buildings in that period.

We gave consequently a great attention to these elements:
1 – stereometric clarity of volumes
2 – corporate colour-palette applied at buildings? scale
3 – absolute control of facades designing all functional accessories to stay inside the sheds.
