The Building is a part of Celje’s anti-flooding infrastructure. In it two electric generators for water pumps are based. The generators’ height was exceeding the maximum height allowed in the area. That is the reason for the roof’s characteristic shape: it is adjusted to the form of generators to make the building as low as possible. The image of the industrial building is therefore a mere reflection of the technology situated inside. Due to the fact that the building stands in a natural environment of Savinja river, an additional metal net skin was added, once to be overgrown with green.

    Good idea make to separate surfaces, house and outside mesh. It is possible to change shape of this mesh in future without changing the house.
