The Central Fire Station of San Francisco is a design that was presented for the contest conducted on the website ARCHmedium, as an answer to the need of having a main station from which this institution could coordinate and develop their activities.
For the conceptualization, design, and development of the idea, I worked with a team: Martín, who is a graphic designer, and Ernesto, who is also an architecht and illustrator. Together, we designed the fire department headquarters under the concept of “The Ladder”. This concept aims to pay tribute to the work of firefighters and represent their desire for overcoming adversity.
Formally, the building is composed by two interconected bodies. The first floor includes spaces where they can develop technical work and other support areas; the other levels you can find spaces such as a residence for the firemen and recreational areas.
