Los Angeles County Fire Station #108

PROJECT TYPE  Institutional
LOCATION  Santa Clarita, CA

A new station to serve a development of newly built homes.  In an unprecendented arrangement, the fire station was to be built by the housing developer, allowing the Fire Department to take advantages of the economies of scale available in multi-unit development.   The design challenge, therefore, was to adapt as many of the residential building systems as possible from the adjacent houses, while incorporating the technology and functional requirements of an emergency services building.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department began in 1920, and is currently responsible for over 4 million residents in over 1.2 million housing units across an area of 2,305 square miles. (!!)
