Ennead Architects • Part of an ongoing series of modernization projects for the Fire Department of the City of New York, Ennead Architects’ new Rescue Company 3 headquarters was designed to replace an outdated building and update the facilities to answer the department’s changing needs. A Rescue Company—home to a first-response team in case of disaster, and different from a standard firehouse—requires specialized spaces to house equipment for everything from exposure to biochemical agents to propping up heavy loads in case of building collapse. It was these interior spaces that attracted the jury, even more than the angular concrete and red-painted steel exterior: “I did like the interiors; they’re really dramatic. I’ve never seen another fire station like this,” juror John Cary said. The jury appreciated certain aspects of the project, such as a carefully detailed stair in the main space, and juror Donna Robertson applauded the idea of recognizing public projects.
