Our primary design objective for the city centre station (pictured right and below) is to replace the existing and outdated facility with a fit-for-purpose and energy efficient building; at Brough (pictured above) we are designing a new station to replace an outdated leased premises. The station in the centre of Hull is located adjacent a Grade II Listed Church and a mixture of medium rise residential buildings. This context has played into the traditional form of the building and the materials we have selected. The heavy use of brick throughout the station is broken up by vertical profiled black cladding and a perforated metal façade. For the Brough fire station we have opted for a slightly more contemporary design approach with regard to the form and materials, reflecting the surrounding industrial building types.
