This new fire station’s hallmark is the clear formal separation of the two areas accommodated in two separate structures.
The square fire engine hall has a glass facade made of bent glass, which outlines the engines’ shapes and colours to be seen from the outside and gets natural light in.
The two-storey rectangular structure accommodates the offices and training rooms incl. all incidental functions. A monolithic clinker building with continuous windows, this structure contrasts with the glass hall that seems rather industrial by comparison.
In their reduced aesthetics and artful dimensions, the two structures form a design unit that fits into Grefrath.
