Restauration, renovation and repurposing of a protected fire station.
With the movement of the fire department to a new building, the city looks to repurpose this existing monument with a new program. The old building has seen some decay over the years and desperately needs renovation and restauration. Commercial and public functions as well as housing units are integrated in the building. The new design has a two folded strategy to realise this: on one side the building is restored to its former glory where existing elements are kept as much as possible, on the other side the inner court yard is transformed into a bright new ensemble with a new facade.
