Fire Station No. 5 – Hillcrest

Orchid Icon  Orchid

Fire Station No. 5 feels like it’s part of the neighborhood while also playing off some fresh ideas. Glad to see design that considers people—that 2nd story porch is great for the firefighters.

    I personally think that this is one of Rob Quigley’s best buildings. It brings interest and punch to a boring section of University Ave. Loved how the balcony worked during the Pride Parade. The real joy is inside, with light washed spaces surrounding a small courtyard. Try to get a tour next time the firefighters have an open house. What an improvement for the firefighters!
