It’s always challenging and fun to be part of a “first”. In this case, it was designing the first station to combine fire and EMS functions. Which is why our key priority was to create a building and experience that expressed unity and harmony.
The compact site required very thoughtful, efficient design. With clean lines, high ceilings and well-proportioned spaces, the goal was to raise functionality to elegance.
A key consideration was the interjection of abundant daylight, allowing the tight but clean, modern spaces throughout to feel open and airy.
“The simple, economical and dignified design of this project is a beautiful demonstration of form following function.”
New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg
