Weinfelden Fire Station in Switzerland by kit architects

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

Article source: kit architects

In 2013, the political commune of Weinfelden arranged an open architectural competition for a new single building to house the fire brigade and the Samaritan emergency services; their resources had up until then been distributed over various locations. Out of the 58 participants, it was the «Grisu» project by kit that was the winner. The jury praised the project as a cultivated industrial building. It stands out through its architectural precision and the impact it has in enhancing the overall urban impression of the route into Weinfelden. At the same time, the new building superbly fulfils all the functional requirements of the various blue-light organisations.

In stone, fire department margreid in South Tyrol, Italy by bergmeisterwolf architekten

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

Article source: bergmeisterwolf architekten

A stone wall is the stage backdrop for the new fire department in margreid, along the wine road. three large caverns in a mountain, connected by a crossing tunnel, serve as the inner rooms of the station. two caverns are used for trucks and one for administrative work. a meter from the mountain, a concrete wall, kinked and dyed black, mirrors the angle of the mountain wall. the three caverns dock on to the steel concrete wall that functions both as fall protection and as an architectural element of the fire department. the material chosen was concrete: stable, strong, and mighty; the dark color was achieved by adding beech coal dust, making the concrete look like burnt wood.

Goetzis Fire Station A in Austria by Cukrowicz Nachbaur Architekten ZT GmbH

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

Article source: Cukrowicz Nachbaur Architekten ZT GmbH

The competition project was developed for a different site between the large buildings of the garn market in the south and small scale single family houses in the north. After a change of the building site the project could be adapted. The new building of the fire station reacts to these surroundings with a calm and contained structure. The reduction to a few openings of the structure generates dynamic facades. The functional organization of the building is arranged in two main areas: administration- and training area as well as garage and workshop area. The two areas are connected via a foyer that is situated throughout the whole depth of the building. The foyer also connects the main entrance with the emergency entrance. All main functions are positioned clearly and well arranged on one floor, short hallways and direct connections guarantee the economical operation of the building as well as the optimal functioning in the case of a fire emergency. The structure will be built as a massive construction. The administration- and training area will be fitted with wooden interiors, the garage and workshop area will be built with a robust and durable combination of steel and concrete. The windows of the administration- and training area will be fitted with a layer of perforated metallic fins serving as sunscreen and homogenizing the appearance of the facades.
