The concept of this design was to divide the building into 3 zones. Zone 1 would be the contaminated area, where the firefighter would come into after the fire with their contaminated gears and truck. Zone 2 would be the decontamination/ buffer zone. This zone divides the contaminated area from the residential area. In this zone are room that either act as a buffer between the bay and the residential area or, rooms where the firefighters can dispose of their contaminated clothes and wash up to get rid of the toxins sticking to their skin. Zone 3 is the residential area, this zone should remain contaminant free, so no contaminated gears, and firefighter can only enter if they’ve showered or washed up after coming back from a fire.
