Fire Brigade Margreid in the Rock by Bergmeisterwolf
Embedded in a roadside rock between the vineyards and orchards and leaning on the slopes of the Mendel mountain chain, Fire Brigade Margreid is a unique cave public building designed by Brixen-based practice Bergmeisterwolf.
Architects: Bergmeisterwolf Architekten
Location: Margreid, Italy
Photography: Jürgen Eheim, Günter Richard Wett
Inspiration from architect:
In terms of sustainability the fire brigade differentiates itself in two points from other projects: the positioning of the building and the overall energy concept. …build the fire station into the rock. … valuable ground has been saved and can be used for agriculture.
