Carmel Fire Department Station No. 44
Cited as one of the best places to live in America, Carmel, Indiana is home to the Carmel Fire Department Station No. 44 that was designed as a replacement facility serving the local community in a station that is contextual in its design, materiality, and scale.
Located along East Main Street approximately 17 miles north of downtown Indianapolis, Station No. 44 is surrounded by residential neighborhoods and located north of the Carmel Clay School District and was designed in a contextual response to the classic and historic buildings found in Carmel. A design that is composed entirely of brick facades with Indiana Limestone details, the bright red doors of the Apparatus bays are in contrast to the traditional materials palette.
Appropriately scaled to the surrounding context in a design that is residential in its scale, Station No. 44 is a two-story structure housing three drive-through Apparatus bays, a gear room, office/workspace for those on duty, and living quarters that include a large open kitchen, a dining space, and TV room. The second floor is the sleeping quarters with personal dorm rooms and toilet rooms.
