Fire Station Doetinchem
The new Fire Station in Doetinchem, is designed by Bekkering Adams architects as a villa, integrated in the landscape. Functionality, sustainability and environmental integration have been the leading design themes during the process.
Because of the high transparency, there is an abundance of daylight coming into the building. The various vistas create different views and unexpected perspectives. For instance the sheltered area for the fire trucks can be viewed from the locker room on the first floor and from the hall the Fire trucks can be seen. A striking feature of the interior is the majestic staircase that connects all floors and functions. On the upper floor roof gardens, patio’s and terraces provide the building of it’s specific sculptural expression, creating outdoor spaces with their own specific identity. The building is designed as a villa in the green and is embedded in its ecological structure.
Bekkering Adams architects won two prizes in the competition ‘Architectuur Prijs Achterhoek 2014’.
