A new home for the Fire Brigade : Fire Station Doetinchem combines sustainability , functionality and an attractive working and living environment in a green oasis
The Fire Brigade Achterhoek West Doetinchem is 24 hours operational and the building houses a mix of functions for working, living and sleeping facilities. A spatial development with various vistas makes the organization clear and transparent, allowing visitors a glimpse of the dynamic environment of the fire station. The robust brick building is designed as a villa in the green and has obtained an A+ energy label. It is embedded in its ecological structure, situated next to an important route for bats. Functionality, sustainability and environmental integration have been the leading design themes during the process.

A fire station typically is organized into two distinct zones — one that reaches outwards to the city and acts as a monumental symbol of protection, and one that contains the hidden inner workings of the station. In a large headquarters, with a diverse set of programs each with their own unique spatial requirements, such a strategy of containment is untenable.

The program consists of a garage for 3 fire trucks, dressing rooms, workshops office and instructions areas and a cafeteria. The fire station is situated in a suburban area with mainly traditional housing. On the relatively small site a two floor building was designed with a cubic shape. The floor plans are very compact and functionally designed to support speedy action in case of fire and emergencies. One has to reach a calamity within 8 minutes. In contrast with the brick of the houses in the area the fire station was given a specific character expressing the professionalism of the fire brigade.

RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ENVIRONMENT
In judo, virtuosity is achieved by profiting from the power of the contrary in our benefit. The plot is located beside a highway. In this position is usual to generate some type of protective parameter which separates us from it. Here, instead of rejecting this particular situation, we collect it in our profit, as in judo.

The fire station occupies the old train sheds of the Girona-Olot carrilet narrow-gauge railway line. Before the project to remodel and extend the facilities, the station was operating but its installations were obsolete. The project consisted in adapting it to present-day needs and repairing the constructive pathologies and deficiencies of a building which, though not listed architectural heritage, is unique and forms part of a railway complex that has an important historic and cultural value.
