Integrated into a dense urban context with a historic pumping plant from 1901, the new station has a distinctive layout that creates an overall architectural coherence between new and old and between the city and its infrastructure. The many constructional and technical constraints, the location of the historic plant, the limited site space and the many sub-installations, have posed great demands on the overall architectural expression and physical workspaces.

With green roofs and two characteristic 24 meter tall pressure towers, the new pumping station will be an independent counterpart to the historic building, and the round shape reflects an "underworld" whose circular geometry is an expression of the optimized layout of the underground pumping well.

Harvesting roof and surface water plays a key role in the area’s operational and visual profile, including recreational outdoor areas for employees designed as wet-zones which help minimize the overall paved area significantly.
