Tietgensgade District Cooling Plant: Growing Environmentally

One of the first power stations to be built in Copen­hagen has been converted and extended to become a district cooling plant as part of the efforts to sup­ply major Copenhagen organizations with energy-efficient seawater cooling.
The plant has a capacity of 18 MW and supplies, among others, Copenhagen City Hall and the Danish State Archives with environmen­tally friendly cooling, produced with the aid of sea water from the capital’s harbour.
The administration office provides space for 12 staff members and meeting facilities as well as work­shops, storage rooms, shower and changing rooms for 30 people, together with a kitchen and canteen.

The interior of the building has been reorganized to meet the demands of the project. Some original rooms have been recreated and a number of new ones have been established. Some existing roofs have had to be raised to make space for the cooling plant, crea­ting a new superstructure in very distinctive recessed brickwork. The new building elements may be seen as a nod to the other historical layers of the building complex, remaining entirely in red brickwork.
