Oyster River Fire Hall
This 8,100 SF rural firehall was designed to accommodate a volunteer fire rescue department in a growing community. The hall has 5 truck bays (2.5 tandem bays) as well as a large workshop, training room and department offices.
Large glulam beams and secondary purlins form the two large roofs and accentuate the main design idea by resembling large wings of a bird. Exterior materials, such as the brightly coloured metal cladding, announce the firehall to the street while maintaining a relationship with the regional character.
Recreation space looks over the apparatus bays making it easily accessible when the call comes.
