N+B Architectes completes new facility for firefighters 

The Exploitation Center and the building for forest firefighters takes place on a site to be located in the very heart of a huge green zone. It is composed of hills covered with scrublands and with vast agricultural plains which transcribe the very specific character of this region. These natural elements are a major asset.

The project tries to join as a line the supplementary slope which complies to by-pass and protect major elements of the landscape, such as the big trees or the standing banks. So protecting these recognisable elements, the building goes from the basement of the hill and develops three main façades; the roof, the East façade and the West one.

The whole is homogenous, thanks to the choice of the materials; a textured matter, the tones and nuances of which are in harmony with the environment.
