Pinetop Fire Station No. 110 is a two-story 12,366 s.f. fire station located on a hillside site. Due to the small size of the site, the station was split into two levels, public and private. The majority of the first level is accounted for by the apparatus bays and its associated spaces. Offices, a community space and the fitness room are also located on the ground level. The private aspect of the fire station is located on the second level. This includes dorms, dayroom, dining and kitchen. The project drew its identity from the context of the site, which is the White Mountains in the Apache / Sitgreaves National Forest and the alpine quality of the Pinetop-Lakeside community. The resulting station ties into the existing fabric through the use of massing, material selection and limited disturbance to the mountain-side site. An interesting aspect of the program was a hose drying tower which is also designed to be used for H.A.R.T. Training and forest fire observation. The project is constructed with I.C.F. exterior walls which are clad in siding. The apparatus bays and training tower were constructed with masonry.
