The historical fire station building was constructed in 1935, and forms part of the narrative of Johannesburg's unique city history. Its neighbourhood quality has a dialogue with residents and the street in its modest scale. Courtyards and small staircases spill out from the building onto the sidewalks, and lively shops and restaurants create a vibrant atmosphere around the building.

Legacy, respect and pride are values captured in the new building's design that pays homage to it's surrounding environment

This new development seeks to be a thematic and spatial extension of the original Rosebank Fire Station.

The architectural counterpoint of the building links to the theme of fire: the danger, the colour and the dramatic contrasts. Elements of the building facades become like planes of black coal - this stark effect is interrupted by shards of glowing light and colour peeking through like flames shining through cracks in a burning log.

At night the building gives off a reddish glow like a burning coal. These conceptual ideas form the inspiration for the use of contrasts and strong (massive) lines and forms. The new building encapsulates the nostalgic fire station but also creates a vibrant, contemporary landmark building.
The Design

The building form challenges conventional office design practice and explores cutting-edge philosophies. These ideas are enhanced by the incorporation of current technology.

Rosebank Firestation is a new state of the art development located in the heart of Rosebank. This beautiful unit boasts beautiful views over JHB.
