Fire Station 32
An existing forty-year-old fire station was razed to make room for this 18,000 square feet, 3-story above ground, plus basement fire station that houses Engine Company 32, Ladder Company 11, Medic Unit 32, and Battalion Chief 7 to serve West Seattle.
The station entry is marked by a 25-foot-tall wall-mounted fire truck art sculpture. Not to be outdone, the 61-foot-tall hose drying tower acts as a monument for the station between the southern residential hillside and tall mixed-use buildings to the north. In addition to a 59-foot long glazed apparatus bay, the station includes operation and administrative space, firefighter living spaces, and public areas.
The building is designed to enhance the firefighter wellbeing, provides tons of daylighting, and views to the exterior. It is anticipated to achieve LEED Platinum certification.
