It has been decided to build as compact as possible to create short and efficient walking routes. A good example is shown in the fire brigade depot, which has been designed in such a way that it can be reached within 15 meters from all rooms. The building also has space for a number of staff services and office functions of the Hague corps. There are 15 bedrooms and a spacious living room with kitchen. To keep the condition up to scratch, there is room on the rooftop for sports with a full basketball court in a sports cage.
The colored façade surfaces run from fire brigade red to ambulance yellow and have a silver-shiny band. This gives the building a clear and recognizable identity. The portholes in the sleeping and living areas offer a view of the fire department's work area. The building accommodates eight fire trucks and 18 ambulances.
