Monaghan Fire Station

Monaghan Fire Station

Low maintenance, landmark building for Monaghan town.

Client:
Monaghan County Council

Completed:
2011
Location:
Annahagh, Monaghan

Budget:
€2m

As well as developing a design which would meet the specifications necessary for the efficient and professional functioning of a fire station, our aim was to also create a visually appealing, low maintenance building which will be a landmark for Monaghan town. A key design element is the unusual tilt of the front façade of this new Fire Station expresses the readiness of the fire brigade to respond to an emergency. Another striking element of the building is the external free-standing drill tower. Enclosed with Graepel cladding, a perforated metal mesh building material, makes this staircase visible from the outside, creating a sculptural as well as functional element.
