The station relates to nearby civic buildings while maintaining its own unique quality. Wrapped in a folded plane of copper skin, its program is revealed through a series of pulls and reliefs in this fabric. Opaque apparatus bay doors within the transparent curtain wall are juxtaposed with the fritted station signage to create civic identity and a clear public presence. The station accommodates both the work regimen and the human comfort needs of its inhabitants. The compact plan and simple form of the building optimize its operational efficiency. Room adjacencies support a place for firefighters to work, relax, rebound and enjoy the camaraderie of station life.
