Fremantle Fire StationA CITY OF TEN PEOPLE...
A Firestation is unique in its operation as a public building as it serves the role of a home as much as a place of work for its inhabitants. the design of station 02 aims to achieve a balance between the rigorous functional needs of a public building and the need to provide a Civilised living environment for the four platoons that will work there.
A firestation is an important ordering device within the space of a city and as such should present a strong sense of purpose and belonging to the wider urban fabric. station 02 aims to achieve this by developing links with its immediate context as well as taking inspiration from other elements of the city.
