Italian architecture practice Pedevilla designed an Alpine rose-tinted fire station located in the Eastern Hochpustertal, built at 1.130m above sea level.
The main construction is made from lightweight concrete. Inside of the hall, stone pine and Loden wood were used to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere to add the contrast to the massive feeling of concrete.
To make a connection between the second level and the exterior, the architects designed spiral stairs that rise from the porch into the space above.
"The project offers clear and compact structure. The warm color is a sign of the function and underscores the independence.” added the architects.
