Punibach Hydroelectric Power Station in Tyrol
The Punibach hydroelectric power station is conceived as a ‘fracture in the landscape’. The concrete slab is rammed into the ground, separating the smooth hilly landscape and the raw building structure. By night the building appearance changes dramaticlaly, glowing through the lamellar façade.

Hydroelectric Power Station
The hydroelectric power station is located near Winnebach brook in Dörfl (municipal territory of Vintl), at 800 m. above sea level. It’s partly built into the slope, since the building area was extremely reduced. The project consists in a simple but polygonal volume, which is formally adapted to the landscape and the local conditions. The power station is conceived as an artificial rock quarried out of the slope.
