Hiroshima City Nishi Fire Station

This fire station stands on Peace Boulevard, built under the project Hiroshima 2045: City of Peace & Creativity, which employs established architects to build public facilities.

Anyone is welcome to enter; in fact, inviting visitors inside is one of the purposes of this building. The office and seminar room are both equipped with full-height glazing, aiming for an OPEN fire station.
