Pilot Sound Fire Hall
Built to a LEED Gold Certification, the Pilot Sound Fire Hall is another successful joint design venture of JDa and Arch |TB. It employs sustainable architecture practices and incorporates a variety of important strategies including water conservation, bioswales, high-albedo site paving materials, building orientation, natural lighting, advanced ventilation and drought tolerant planting. Visually, this station commands attention through its 240 square metres of custom-glazed fire-engine-red MOEDING terracotta cladding.
The concept of neighbourhood open space has been addressed by limiting the development of the site so that as much green space as possible was retained or gentrified on site.
