ARC’s renovation and addition to the City of Seattle’s Fire Station #34 includes new uses associated with the apparatus bay and added features to improve the quality of time the crew spends at the station, highlighted by the addition of a fitness room and a dayroom. Seismic and accessibility upgrades are unobtrusive and a new generator and fuel tank are seamlessly integrated.  The functional and clear organization of these new uses and improvements preserve Seattle architect David Fukui’s original “jewel box” design. The material palate focused on ease of maintenance while creating a contemporary aesthetic which compliments the original building’s character.


ARC also led the design team for the renovation to Seattle Fire Station 25, which included seismic upgrades to meet current codes and addition of apparatus bay functions to improve response time and functionality. Crew areas including the beanery, offices, restrooms and locker room are receiving minor improvements. Two new windows cut in the cast concrete will provide welcome daylight in the office areas. A new site retaining wall with signage and a green wall at the terrace provide a fresh image for a building.
