Fire stations are a very unique hybrid of public and residential spaces. For fire-fighters, they are like their homes, they spend most of their working hours in fire-stations. They need a home like space where they can stay, work, relax and also can enjoy some privacy. A firestation should have separations and innovative spaces that compliment its work functions. In addition to that, fire-fighters also fight with toxins (carnicogens) which are silent killers. Keeping in mind the issue of toxins and Addition of innovative spaces, I have came up with the proposal below which is base on two ideas; " Adding a home like atmosphere" and "incorporating separate zones for decontamination" through architecture.
