The building is solid and protected towards the motorway and transparent and open towards the lake. The curved shape creates a secluded space facing the lake, forming an environment for activities as well as reflecting the dynamics of the roads.The building consists of four main elements, Base – Shield - Tower-Bridge, as reflected in expression, function, construction and use of materials.
The base: Front quay, outdoor space and lower floors form a dramatic shape facing south, opening towards north and future urban planning. The base is a concrete construction with a robust solid expression. It houses workshops, fire trucks and technical rooms.
The shield:The main feature spans above the solid concrete base as a continuous element – consisting of slab, one wall and a roof. The shield opens towards the lake. Openings in-between the roof ensure mountains views from the interior of the building.
The tower: A landmark to define the Fire station from a distance. It is placed asymmetrically to create an interesting tension and a natural balance between the space and volume of the shield.
The bridge: This marks the main entrance of the building and spans from under the shield to the tower two metres above the ground. It serves as a training area for the firemen.
