Gasometer Architizer finalist

From gas holder to green icon

Acclaimed for its innovative approach to urban renewal, Gasometer has been recognised in Unbuilt Sustainable Residential category, setting the project apart from other projects worldwide. Transforming a historic Gasometer into a vibrant hub of sustainable living, this ambitious initiative is an example of architectural excellence and impactful sustainable redevelopment.

The Gasometer in Münster, a relic of the city’s industrial past, is undergoing a striking metamorphosis into a nature-inclusive residential tower surrounded by a lush park. As a result, this monumental complex, once a vital source of fossil fuel for the city, will once again become the epicentre of innovation and communal living.

Spearheaded by an interdisciplinary team of designers and consultants, this ambitious is defined by three focal themes: fostering communities, integral sustainability, and creating a strong identity rooted in the building’s rich history. By repurposing this industrial heritage, this project not only breathes new life into a cultural landmark but also serves as a catalyst for the redevelopment of an all-new vertical urban district.
