Athens Fire Station #1

Given an idyllic corner lot in a neighborhood, CMH designed and scaled this fire station in keeping with the residential aesthetic of the surroundings. Redbrick and residential features such as the painted timber frame brackets that support the awning over the entrance and the garage doors, making the station feel like a longtime part of the community.

The Athens Fire Station #1 is a facility that was designed to thoughtfully fit into the context of the residential community that surrounds it, while also accomplishing the everyday requirements of a fully operational modern fire station.
