Italian studio Pedevilla Architects designed a minimal rose-tinted structure that serves as a fire station for the town of Vierschach in South Tyrol.
Built at 1,130m above sea level from lightweight concrete, the design prioritizes simplicity and durability. Inside, stone pine and native Loden wood were used to create a warm contrast to the concrete exterior, providing a welcoming atmosphere to the space, which doubles as a hall for local residents. According to the architects, “The project offers a clear, compact structure. The red color is a sign of the building’s function and underscores its independence.”
