Wilshire District Fire Station

The WDFD is an ‘optimal fire station’ based in an area of West Hollywood suffering from the poorest emergency response time in LA. Existing design regulations were assessed in order to shave seconds off emergency response procedures through a series of incremental improvements. The roof plan shows three individual apparatus bays minimising off-site truck maneuvers derived from the choreography of the pitstop.

Also shown are a series of dynamic devices to reinvigorate the roadside landscape of Miracle Mile, using the momentum of a vehicle to recreate a landscape of ‘Googie’ architecture.
