Schematic Design & Design Development
The renovation of Batavia Fire Station #1 included major building additions and site alterations. Balancing the Batavia Fire Department's desire for a high impact aesthetic in the landscape with the need for low maintenance was accomplished with the use of hardy tree and shrub species and colorful perennial materials. Evergreen trees screen the station from the adjacent residential properties while the low plantings at the foundation provide a foreground for the architectural details of the new facility.
