Hi guys! Yesterday I have talked about a building and modern home design, now today I would like to try to review something impressive and fresh! A fire station! Well this is including in a building design category, but I have never reviewed this post yet from the first time I made this web. Ok guys for more information about this fire station building see below!
This fire station is called the Russelsheim Bauschheim Fire Station. This fire station was completed designed by the architect Schoyerer Architekten BDA. Precisely located in Baushheim, Rüsselsheim, Germany, this fire station was constructed under the architect’s client order Stadt Rüsselsheim, Gebäudewirtschaft Rüsselheim.
Let me see the site location, this new building for the voluntary brigade is situated on a main access road which is leading into the part of Rüsselsheim named Bauschheim on the corner of ’’Brunnerstrasse’’ and ’’I’m Grundsee’’. The surrounding built fabric is made up of a heterogeneous mix of double and single storey dwellings with hipped and pitched roofs.
Via a roof which is cantilever over the facade of the vehicle garage the front of the fire station responds to the building line along Brunnerstasse thus referring to the special usage of the building in its context. As if they were parked inside an oversized display case, the fire engines are in full view through the fully glazed facade of the vehicle garage.
Here, a fire brigade on standby mode is the theme. As if it could jump into action at any moments to fulfill its prime function at anytime, through this transparency the building conveys a sense of being in a constant state of readiness, thus it is conveying a sense of the security and alertness. Well, ‘alert’ is a part of the fireman job isn’t?
The building conveys the idea of volume and incision reminiscent of cut loaf bread or a sliced kiwi, planned as a compact and monochromatic volume into which specific incisions have been made. There is a consistent dark envelope paired with contrasting lightly colored incisions. The roof terrace and the entrance/exit to the garage – the dark skin also stands in contrast to the bright interior spaces and bright red fire engines parked in the garage, not only does the monochrome dark brown / olive colored skin of the building create the perfect backdrop for the brightly colored incisions that mark specific areas such as the front and back entrance.
The fire station building has a surprising transparency for a fire station, although there are only few windows there. The complete axis of the corridor within the building is flooded with natural light. From within the garage there is also a sense of transparency within the inside structure of the building. The upper level becomes visually connected to the ground floor. The upper level is spatially structured along an axis consisting of the roof terrace, multipurpose space and its spatial expanded bay window. Reversedly at night there is a distinct visual connection from inside to outside via the aforementioned spatial structure been brightly illuminated from the middle of it.
Well guys, that is something new from me. As a fire station building, this has an impressive building architecture design. Ok guys, that are all I have got, hope fully this little information is useful enough for you guys. Have a nice day then!
