C.F. Møller Architects’ project attempts to respond to today’s need for high performance technical systems designed to fit into the natural landscape and interact with it.

C.F. Møller, gas plant, Denmark

In designing this technical gas compression plant in Denmark, C.F. Møller Architects started out by considering the fact that technical installations are often camouflaged and hidden by greenery to prevent their presence from disturbing the environment and the natural landscape in which they stand.

This is how they came up with the challenge of creating a gas compression plant that would be a work of architecture in its own right, capable of interacting with its natural surroundings while at the same time meeting the high functional and safety standards necessary for an installation of this kind.
The buildings rise above the ground on grassy banks, and their upper part is covered with corten steel.
This covering creates effects of light and shadow, and the combination of materials selected by the architects gives the construction a powerful yet elegant appearance.
