The Ave Fenix Fire Station was designed by at. 103 is located in Mexico City, Mexico. Because of site conditions of the fire hall has a space for the general public. The chosen design for the station comes to the outside as a simple high box that almost disappears behind a facade that appropriates its context in a set of reflections, floating in the maneuver area and trucks, the latter extends to the street and incorporates the urban space while generating through the analysis of truck movements.
Interior chrome box, two other potential uses and complement each other, organizing themselves through plans with perforations ranging in size providing light sources and the communication between floor levels, and the tubes classic steel where the firefighters slide down during an emergency. In this way, making them share the space with views of the cross in the patios, but without mixing, the solution reached to intertwine the two uses – the station and the so-called, curiously, bomberoteca (library men to fire), also connect them, thank you to the height of the lower deck to the street and everything is going.
Once built the fire station and emergency call comes, and you can watch with delight the completeness and complexity of this urban piece of equipment is needed most urban as a theme for reflection and d action architecture.
