Merrick and Company

Holloman AFB Fire Station 1

Project Description


Mr. Lagomarsino was the Project Architect for the Holloman Fire Stations

This 36,000 square foot facility was designed in conjunction with two other facilities using 2003 Dollars. An innovative approach using simple forms but outside the box was used. Air Force Standard designs were used to support the materials pallette. Fire station in its entirety was put on the table as an alternate in order to bring even the most basic of designs in under budget. A curved form alludes to a parti based on the delivery form of water: a hose, which is cylindrical. Certain walls angled which were dervied from the industrial design of the end of a fire hose. Only Fire Station One was able to keep the curved roofs in its linguistic form. Most of the three buildings kept the angled walls. ACC enjoys the freshness of design outside the box.


ADT 5.0 was employed to develop the perspectives required by ACC.

LEEDS accreditation was persued using features like Natural Lighting in a clerestory
