The competition for the new protection centre in Bitburg has been decided - 4a Architekten have received recognition together with Transsolar KlimaEngineering. The stretched fire station building with its dynamic form was planned as a timber hybrid construction. With its elegant design, it takes on an outstanding position in the urban environment and has an identity-forming effect.

Excerpt from the jury report: "The building is characterised by elegance and transparency. The floor plan is principally disciplined and structurally taut. The location of the idea part of the company flats is cleverly chosen in order to give the disaster control centre its space."
