The Rotary and Fixed Air Wing Facility, completed by BLP in 2009 at Essendon Airport, is featured in Chris van Uffelen’s publication on Fire Departments, Police Stations and Rescue Services. The book presents the wonderful diversity of contemporary “emergency architecture”.
Buildings for emergency services have evolved into an independent and fascinating architectural typology in the past two decades. These are always an attractive challenge – when functional demands and high security measures are brought in sync with stylish modern design, the results reflect the highest levels of architectural skills.
