New Snekkersten waterworks is the latest in a series of new waterworks designed by Gottlieb Paludan Architects – all with new, modern technologies, and all focusing on managing our water resources and communicating about the circulation of water.

Elsinore-based utilities company Forsyning Helsingør has built a new Snekkersten Waterworks, including a new plant, and inviting residents inside for a tale about water. Gottlieb Paludan Architects is the lead architect behind the new Snekkersten Waterworks

The site of Snekkersten’s new waterworks enjoys a view across Snekkersten and the Øresund sound. The new waterworks is being created on high ground that slopes down towards Øresund, taking advantage of the terrain to incorporate the big clean-water tanks so that they not only appear smaller but also reflect the natural gravitational force of the water.

The waterworks is organized into one technical wing and one visitors’ and staff wing. The processing plant is symmetrically structured and located in a cubic building with Corten steel façades that tower over the low concrete wing. A large glazed section will be constructed facing the Øresund and overlooking the tanks, while water pumps along the façade and visible downpipes also contribute to the watery narrative.

The new Snekkersten Waterworks is built by Forsyning Helsingør. The building is designed by Gottlieb Paludan Architects and the project realized as a turnkey contract in collaboration with Krüger A/S, CC Brun A/S and ISC Ingeniører A/S.

Since early spring 2020, the new waterworks in Snekkersten has supplied local residents and businesses with clean drinking water. The facility is the latest in a series of new waterworks designed by Gottlieb Paludan Architects – all with new, modern technologies, and all focusing on managing our water resources and communicating about the circulation of water.
