The new fire station in Ingelheim sets a local benchmark for sustainability. The facade exudes calm and clarity and its use of structured exposed concrete gives the facade design a beautiful, complex and innovative feel.
The design of the new building was undertaken by Braunger Wörtz Architekten GmbH.
The facade design used sandwich elements: built exterior walls comprising an internal reinforced concrete shell, core insulation and a reinforced concrete cover shell designed using a horizontal formliner.
The architects opted for a rib structure from the RECKLI SELECT series to give the sandwich elements a special look. The 1/245 Nevada design has clear, vertical ribs which, despite their varied width and arrangement, give a sense of calm to the facade design. Two formliner sized 3m x 1m and 3.5m x 1m were used for a usable area of 130 m².
After stripping the formwork, the external walls were acidified with our surface protector to create a warm beige, sandy look and connect the building to the region.
