The aim of the competiton was to find the best conceptual design for a new Centre for Protection and Rescue, which would serve to a wider region of the citiy of Ljubljana. The architectural competition required solutions which would solve issues regarding building constructions, modern energy supply, fire protection and landscaping within the specified area of the competition.
The reason for the construction of a new Centre for Protection and Rescue is that the activity should be placed in a more suitable location, which would allow an update of all the technical parameters and combine all related activities in the field of protection and rescue at one location. The proposal should provide the best functional concept of architecture, modern design aesthetic based on the rational use of technological solutions and quality materials in the outline of sustainable construction. It should also contribute to the culture of spatial planning and highlight the social significance of the building. Center for Protection and Rescue is a highly functional facility, but in terms of spatial design and aesthetics it can be devised as an interesting modern architecture.

The garages of the engines are located in the ground floor together with all the maintanence. The main entrance to the building is from the northern facade into the large foyer which also serves as a museum of the fire brigade. In the folowing stories, there are located offices, sporting facilites, dormatories and such.
