Charleroi Fire Station

Charleroi
Belgium

Art & Build achieves perfect landscape integration with their Charleroi Fire Station design (…)
The architectural components of the building are slipped under a vast green roof which swoops up from grade level to undulate gently over the functional spaces below, creating a unifying figure in the landscape and echoing the nearby Hiercheuses mounds. The tower stands out as a sort of totem, giving strong signal value to the town and expressing its function through form. The fire station brief includes a large hall for emergency vehicles as well as the auxiliary services including a crisis response centre, a recreation zone, sports facility, barracks, regional administrative offices and a fire prevention school.
