The Galante Architecture Studio as Architects

As a winner in the design excellence competition, TGAS was awarded projects with the City of New York. This expansion of an existing fire station is clad in a terra-cotta rain screen, with inset cement board panels. Grey was chosen as a conceptual record of ashes found after a building fire. Southern sun is modulated with a brise-soleil (sunscreen), which incorporates the FDNY logo. The expansion doubles the building’s size, and meets stringent design guidelines set by FDNY. Fire trucks are understood as rolling tool boxes, carrying equipment to fight fires. Fire stations need to operate as more complex static tool boxes; recharging equipment, tools and personnel.
