Downtown Scottsdale LEED platinum Fire Station 2, the first Fire Station in the US to be certified LEED Platinum, was designed for LEED certification as part of the City of Scottsdale’s green building initiative. Lawrence Enyart, FAIA, LEED Fellow and Lance Enyart, AIA, LEED AP a Father-Son team from LEA Architects, LLC, Phoenix, AZ, designed the new Downtown Scottsdale Fire Station No. 2 as part of an urban infill project. The two-story Emergency Service facility meets the daily operational needs of the new City of Scottsdale Fire Department and the community, while utilizing both passive and active sustainable green building principles to maximize sustainability and enhance overall energy performance. The contemporary architecture responds to both the civic & historical context of the surrounding urban area drawing from the materials, colors, and textures of the existing built environment. Sustainable materials were used throughout the design in vertical and horizontal applications. Natural materials including locally manufactured ground face concrete masonry, in combination with Arizona sandstone, glass, and weathering steel define the building surface and exude a sense of sustainability and presence while units offering contrasting texture and form throughout the project.

The fundamental idea of this project lies at the exact intersection of architecture, urbanism and landscape architecture. We directly considered the urban character of this project as a crucial point, in light of the scale and the impact of the intervention on the surrounding area in future. This project represents the exceptional opportunity to delineate a very special identity. An identity that incorporates concepts like ecologic engagement, energy conservation, passive construction, community interests, social mixture, awareness of the qualities of the landscape, water resource management and preservation of biodiversity along with immutable concepts such as beauty, attractiveness, allurement, atmosphere and poetry.

The building accommodates the central Fire Department for one million people urban area.
From the site dense urban length is visible, squeezed on the narrow and deep banks of the river. Also visible is the green landscape, with water and vertical slopes that confine the city and compress it against the estuary.

A new home for the Fire Brigade : Fire Station Doetinchem combines sustainability , functionality and an attractive working and living environment in a green oasis
The Fire Brigade Achterhoek West Doetinchem is 24 hours operational and the building houses a mix of functions for working, living and sleeping facilities. A spatial development with various vistas makes the organization clear and transparent, allowing visitors a glimpse of the dynamic environment of the fire station. The robust brick building is designed as a villa in the green and has obtained an A+ energy label. It is embedded in its ecological structure, situated next to an important route for bats. Functionality, sustainability and environmental integration have been the leading design themes during the process.

A fire station typically is organized into two distinct zones — one that reaches outwards to the city and acts as a monumental symbol of protection, and one that contains the hidden inner workings of the station. In a large headquarters, with a diverse set of programs each with their own unique spatial requirements, such a strategy of containment is untenable.
