contributed by Stein_Halvorsen_Arkitekter

Bergen Main Fire station is located in the centre of Bergen, capitol city of western Norway. The aim was to create a functional and well-proportioned project and to establish good working conditions. It had to address the following main points: first to incorporate the special qualities of the site: the lakeside view and the view towards the seven mountains embracing the city of Bergen. Secondly it had to minimize the negative effects of the neighbouring motorway and thirdly to take into account future planned development. The building itself is curved. The outer curve - facing the motorway – forms the back of the building. It is solid and functions as protection towards the noise allowing the building to open up towards the courtyard facing the lake and the planned development. The shape of the building reflects the curved lines of the traffic machine and it follows the perimeter of the site in order to maximize the courtyard.
