Like quarried out of a block of red sandstone, the monolithic structure of the new fire station is positioned parallel to the B9 expressway. The building asserts itself independently and at the same time interacts with the surrounding streets. According to the motto - show what you do - the fire brigade occupies the functional and flexible plateau with its daily operations. The cube is harmoniously embedded in its new location with optimal traffic connections and fulfills its significance as the prelude and southern entrance to the city of Germersheim.
