The Gärstad plant

C.F. Møller Architects as Architects

The new incineration plant is an extension to the existing Gärstadverken district heating plant, and is located right beside European Highway 4. This high-profile location places high demands on the architectural design of what is perhaps Linköping's most visible building.


The main building covers 115 x 31m and is 45 m tall. It is largely built up of glass, exposing the primary processes - the furnace and the gas purification plant - partly as part of the architectural expression, and partly as a pedagogical element. The openness of this building contrasts with the other lower and more closed-off buildings.
