Fire fighters are heroes in their own right and deserve a headquarters worthy of their greatness. So when the architects at Bergmeisterwolf were called upon to build the crew at the Margreid Fire Department a new station, they designed a modern cave-like lair. The base is made out of three caverns carved out of a cliff face. The first two house vehicles and machinery while administration areas are reserved for the final one. A slanted concrete wall that's been tinted with beech coal dust acts as the exterior facade. Known for its durability, the exterior also acts a shield for falling rocks.
