Fire and Rescue Centre in Rennes, France by LAN Architecture

Saturday, March 21st, 2015

Article source: LAN Architecture

The fundamental idea of this project lies at the exact intersection of architecture, urbanism and landscape architecture. We directly considered the urban character of this project as a crucial point, in light of the scale and the impact of the intervention on the surrounding area in future. This project represents the exceptional opportunity to delineate a very special identity. An identity that incorporates concepts like ecologic engagement, energy conservation, passive construction, community interests, social mixture, awareness of the qualities of the landscape, water resource management and preservation of biodiversity along with immutable concepts such as beauty, attractiveness, allurement, atmosphere and poetry.

Fire Department Headquarters Proposal in San Francisco by THE OPEN WORKSHOP

Saturday, December 21st, 2013

Article source: THE OPEN WORKSHOP 

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.

Fire Station in Utrecht ,The Netherlands by Van Rooijen Nourbakhsh Architecten

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

Article source: Van Rooijen Nourbakhsh Architecten

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.
