Fire police departement in Lecco
The project area is located between the lake and a state road that quickly connects it to the fast road system. Compared to the requirements that hypothesized dividing the Command into bodies A, B1 and B2 , it is proposed to merge the homogeneous functions by generating a building with linear development with the two main opposing faces, one on the lake and the other on the road.
The building is on two levels: the operational Ground Floor dedicated mainly to the garages, the technical rooms and the warehouses and the Floor 1 dedicated to the offices, the dormitories and the residences. It is therefore natural that GF opens towards the main road while F 1 looks towards the lake.
The green area between the lake and the building partially enters the Fire Departement thanks to a slight change in slope, giving P1 users the opportunity to walk to the shore. To allow access to the waters or to reach quikly the lakefront with the means of transport, two 4m wide corridors have been created that directly connect the garages and the parkings with the western border. The privileged position of the building offers it the opportunity to contemplate the landscape but also to be part of it at 360 °. It will actually be visible both from the opposite shore and from the top of the surrounding mountains, clearly receding into the landscape.
