*2019 FIREHOUSE MAGAZINE STATION DESIGN | CAREER 1 BRONZE AWARD
*2019 F.I.E.R.O. FIRE STATION DESIGN RECOGNITION AWARD
The Westlake Fire Station is a new 17,834 square feet station located in the Town of Westlake. The Administration building is connected to the central fire station by a covered patio area, which contains offices for the Fire Chief, Marshal, and Receptionist. To get access to the Administration building, pedestrians have the option to cross two stone bridges that span the bioswale. Both bridges use a combination of river cobble and vegetation to filter stormwater run-off as it returns to the groundwater system. The placement of the buildings on the site enhances the natural topography and emphasizes transparency and accessibility to the public.
