Temple Back Fire Station
A vital fire station replacement to support operations across the South West
We designed a replacement building for Temple Back Fire Station which supports their vital operations across the South West region.
To support the smooth running of the facility, the building is split into three floors. The ground floor space is dedicated to operational uses, such as the muster and kit maintenance.
The first floor contains offices, a gym and support uses whilst the second floor accommodates comfortable living and social spaces for firefighters and support staff.
A key design aim was to ensure the rich history of the site, on Water Lane and Temple Back, was reflected in the new building. To support this vision and create an interesting look and feel externally, we used distinct patterns in the brick work.
In reducing its impact on the environment, the building makes the most of passive design with an an enhanced level of building fabric performance and renewable energy generation.
In addition, the new fire station is designed to minimise energy consumption in use, this is achieved by an established energy hierarchy approach.
