+ informations


The Saint Fargeau command center includes the accommodation of firefighters, an infirmary, a gymnasium, collective catering, and all intervention services. The smallness of the plot led to the design of a suspended extension to free up the ground and free up large courtyards and gardens.

MISSION The operation consists, on an occupied site, on the one hand of the renovation of a fire station dating from 1904, on the other hand of the creation of 45 housing units in a new building raised from the ground to allow release almost all of it for vehicle maneuvering.
If the old building is reconfigured as close as possible to its original exterior state, it nevertheless houses new functions: sheds, military rooms, catering, training, etc. The bridge building in metal structure uses the traditional vocabulary of Haussmanian equipment and '' clings to neighboring buildings by two transitional volumes: the exercise tower and a block building whose stepped template reduces the impact of the neighboring R + 9.
