New fire station for the city of Harderwijk

Foto G. Beelen

On Friday November 29 king’s commissioner sir Clemens Cornieljeen and mayor Harm-Jan van Schaik opened the new fire station of Harderwijk. The modern building will house the vehicle stalls, changing rooms, workshops, training rooms and offices of the local- and regional fire brigade and the Red Cross.

EHA Architects has designed a characteristic and functional building. The main feature of the building are the red vehicles, that are set behind a serrated transparent façade to ensure their visibility from afar. Cantilevers and vertical louvers reduce heating from direct sunlight – while maintaining daylight admittance and views to the outside – and simultaneously enhance the expression of the fire station.  

The new fire station is also a very sustainable building: due to – among others - the application of high quality insulation, biomass energy generation and heat & cold storage in the ground, the energy use of the building is reduced to 50% of government guidelines.
