Fire Station #8
Colorado Springs, CO
This new facility meets functional requirements, includes the latest technologies, and also honors the historic past of the Fire Department by using a brick design similar to the beloved historic downtown fire stations. HB&A designed the new fire house with a durable all brick exterior utilizing contrasting colors and elements that echo masonry details from the early 20th century. Brick corbelling and projecting brick pilasters provide character and permanence to strengthen the exterior detailing around the entire facility. Approximately 70 custom precast Maltese stones with the fire department emblem enhance the windows and sawtooth patterned archways located on all sides of the building and tower.
