Embracing the local ecology, the architectural concept for the Estero Fire Station No. 45 is environmentally aware. The site plan ensures adaptability and incorporates several sustainable techniques in its design and site integration.
The location of the station within the Florida Wildlife Corridor was also an important consideration in the design process. The station was designed to blend in with the surrounding environment and to minimize its impact on wildlife. The use of natural materials, such as wood and stone, helps to create a sense of harmony with the natural environment.
“It was important to design a station that drew inspiration from the local ecology and wildlife, while also providing an opportunity to educate and connect the community on the history and significance of the surrounding landscape in our own backyard.”Nathalie White, AIA, Associate
