Burnaby Fire Station 7
A design responds to its surrounding environment and an architectural expression reflects the function of the building.

The project provides three drive-through fire truck bays and accommodates living quarters for up to sixteen firefighters including offices, exercise and dining facilities. The main building is designed as a linear form to fit in a small triangular site beside a busy road and it acts as a screen to adjacent traffic. The elevated main floor provides privacy for the station and the long brick wall continues the design theme used in other fire stations of the City. A major hollowed canopy with a flag pole is designed at the main entrance to symbolize the building as a fire station. Green building features are also designed for the building with solar panels and a green roof.
