Monticello Fire Department Station No. 1
Monticello, Indiana, known for its thriving tourism industry, is home to the Monticello Fire Department Station No. 1 that sets the design standard and style for future development in Monticello, Indiana.
Located at West South Street along South 6th Street, Station No. 1 presents a modern approach to the classic and historic fire stations of the past. Appropriately scaled to the neighborhood with a materials palette that blends classic materials with a fresh new palette, the red brick façade with Indiana Limestone detailing, frame the six truck apparatus bays and employees living & sleeping quarters creating a well-proportioned facade to address the community.
The six drive through apparatus bays support twelve firefighters that provide service to the community and the City at large. Monticello Fire Department Station No. 1 features overhead glass doors, transoms, and clerestory windows that lighten the front facade, provide the apparatus bays with natural light, and create transparency and illumination at night. The gable roof covering the station is a significant architectural feature separating the building functionally into the apparatus bay area to the south from the living & sleeping quarter area to the north, made of a forest green standing-seam metal roof. The living quarters includes a day room and kitchen, a fitness area, a gear room, and a 40-person training area / classroom that is also available to the community.
