sedona chapel fire station
LEA has worked closely with the Sedona Fire District for the design of the Sedona Chapel Fire Station (3 bay). LEA did programming, planning, complete designs and a full set of construction documents for this new station. We have recently completed a 2 bay design as well. The station is located off of State Road 179 and sits between The Christ Lutheran Church of Sedona and the Jewish Community Center. In response to this context, the design incorporates a “Friendship Walk” which harmoniously joins the two congregations. The Friendship Walk crescendos at a dramatic gateway to the main entrance of the building at the valley of the butterfly roof above. The entry sequence incorporates a 9/11 memorial and features the buildings rain water harvesting system. The building program includes 3 apparatus bays,a training/community room for public use and living quarters. Living quarters include kitchen and dining, a dayroom, and dormitories. These spaces were meticulously designed to take advantage of the majestic views inherent to the area. The Chapel Fire Station incorporates numerous sustainable design features such as rain water and gray water harvesting, photovoltaic panels, solar hotwater panels, energy efficient mechanical systems with individualized climate control, daylight and occupancy sensors combined with an abundant use of natural daylighting and ventilation.
