This fire station looks like a hangar: striking distance clearly recognizable, modern and ready. Behind the skin, the body of the barracks, the oiled machine of the fire equipment shelters. The striking steel roof is put in the front and both the depot and in the bedrooms and offices in sight left. Radiators, steel, pipes in sight and the use of color highlighting the machine-like character of the barracks. While the firefighters stay the utilitarian interior with a local skin of oak, polyurea or stucco
The entrance hall only by a large glass wall separated from the fire trucks, is located centrally in the building, so that a visitor entering the middle of the fire trucks imagine. This hall is connected to a three-storey atrium. If a village square are all functions, such as offices, garage, fitness and living areas visible around this room. What you get as a design architect with a look in the kitchen of the fire before going to the prevention section is sawn about your plans.
