Main fire and emergency rescue station Krefeld
The fire station is based on an H-shaped floorplan, which consists of two parallel blocks and a connecting workshop building. The result is a protected fire drill yard partly open to the green space. The fire exercise building forms the termination of the ensemble. The main blocks of the building are linked by a glass foyer with an art wall (artist Thomas Weil), which offers space for exhibitions, information events, guided tours and celebrations to integrate the fire brigade into public life. The structure is functional, long-lasting, low-maintenance and designed for good communication.
