这个能源站是一种教育的手段:设计的意图在于促使人们建立对能源消耗的敏感和意识到可持续的和谐共生。混合了热和能源的设备通常是平淡的工业设备,位于一些不显眼的地方。然而恰恰相反的是,Stadshaard(确切的说是城市供热站)位于Roombeek一个显著的位置,这里显然不适合平淡的建筑。以Stadshaard的尺度而言(一座10米高的建筑附带一个40米高的烟囱),难以不被关注。

Stadshaard是Roombeek地区的一座入口标志性建筑,一个吸引眼球的构筑物和一个参照物。它的基本形式是简单的,它的立面由1平米见方的、有生动的主题和装饰性的绘画的板材覆裹而成。新建筑采用了怀旧的用以表明荷兰传统开放式炉灶的代尔夫特陶瓷砖(一种蓝白相间的陶瓷),因此表明这个构筑物或许与火和热有关系:城市供热站。

代尔夫特陶瓷砖经常有体现日常生活中有趣之事的装饰性主题。Stadshaard这些装饰性的图案包含了能源的产生,荷兰恩斯克特著名的建筑或者人物,还有艺术家Hugo Kaagman工作和生活中不断重复的主题。这样成就了荷兰最大的代尔夫特陶瓷艺术品。

This power station is an instrument of education: designed to develop a sensibility for the consumption of energy and sustainable cohabitation. Combined heat and power plants are usually neutral industrial struc-tures that are situated at some inconspicuous location. By contrast, the Stadshaard (literally the ‘city hearth’) stands at a prominent spot in Roombeek, where a neutral building would be out of place. With the Stadshaard’s dimensions (a building 10 metres high with a 40-metre chimney) it would, moreover, be impossible to realize an ‘invisible’ building that merges with the surroundings.

The Stadshaard is a gateway building for the district of Roombeek, an eye-stopper and a point of refer-ence. Its basic form is simple, while its elevations are clad in one-metre-square panels with expressive motifs and figurative depictions. These are reminiscent of the delftware tiles that line Holland‘s traditional open hearths and therefore hint that this structure might have something to do with fire and warmth: the City Hearth.

Delftware tiles often have figurative motifs that are anecdotes about everyday life. The figurative depic-tions for the Stadshaard allude to energy generation, to famous buildings or people from Enschede and to themes that recur often in the work and life of the artist Hugo Kaagman. The result is the biggest delft-ware artwork in the Netherlands.
