Firemen Museum / Catalan Economists HQ
The Fire Prevention Center Project has transformed the former Fire Station of Lleida Street, Barcelona,
The main entrance of the museum recovers the old historical lateral access of the vehicles avoiding an entrance that was located literally in the axis of the building. The architects reutilized the inner parking area of the fire engines as an exhibition space and opened it to the street: the exhibition space symbolized as a covered street.
The project consisted of integral rehabilitation, conservation and adaptation of the most important typological elements such as the central parking area and the tower, which was originally used for training and the drying of the hoses.
