Located in the heart of the city, the proposed Cincinnati Fire Station No. 14 & Training Academy will provide firefighters and firefighters in training with a facility in which they can live, learn, serve and protect. In lieu of a separated campus, the various functions are combined into one cohesive structure. The unique placement of the three main elements that make up this building is conducive to a non-intrusive work environment.
Firefighters are given a private wing in which they are welcome to relax in entertainment rooms or even in a private roof-top garden which features a reflection pond. Trainees are in close proximity to the inner workings of a fire station as they train in the indoor classroom the training tower and the outdoor training yard. With a modern approach, this building reflects the use of green building materials, LEED and non-traditional fire station design.
