Lowry Fire Station

The fire station's design references the historical nature of the Air Force base in Lowry.  The theme for the building's geometry was inspired by the shape and aesthetics of stealth jet fighters.
We divided the building into 4 primary components:
Part 1: The private zone dedicated to the physical and mental support for the firefighters.
Part 2: In the center, the engines and physical tools needed to perform their duty. The engines are centrally located to provide the shortest distance of travel to and from the engines during an emergency call.
Part 3: The public zone dedicated to the community and to the administration of the fire station.
Part 4: A private Interior/Exterior space for sports, activities, relaxation and recooperation.
