About This Project

TBE is a bio-chemical company that produces energy by recycling waste oils. BOLD has been selected to design the new recycling plant for TBE with a capacity of 50.000 tons annually being the highest capacity in Turkey.

The concept design is to create an illusion between machinery and the building structures. The boundaries have been blurred between what’s machine and what’s architectural structure. The layout of the buildings is designed in a way that emphasises the route of the liquid material through the whole process. The function of the buildings can easily be read from outside by the the exposed structure and transparent architectural design elements.
