The Projects main issue is the refurbishment of a historical Diesel-Powerplant in the city of Cottbus. Erected by the Architect Werner Issel in 1927-1928 the building shows the typical industrial architecture of its time. The colour of the Brickstone façades ranges from a dark violet to a yellowish brown and contrasts very impressing with the surrounding green park. Located on a small island in the River Spree the former Powerplant occupies an important position in the urban structure of Cottbus. Anderhalten Architekten chose to implant large concrete Boxes insinde the existing façades. This preserves the structure given by Issel and inserts new spaces for exhibitions and workshops. The quality of this reconstruction lies in the rearrangement of the existing layout and the minimalistic approach which enhances the gorgeous expressionistic architecture and provides appropriate space for the exposed artwork.
