Location: Fourth Ward Neighborhood, Charlotte, NC

Size: 38,500 sqft

Client: Charlotte Fire Fighters Association

Story: Our design for the historic Fire Department No. 4 Station on Fifth Street called for historic exhibit space, educational exhibit space, a gift shop, administrative offices, event/banquet space, a small theatre, a roof terrace, and an outdoor memorial courtyard.

To accommodate the desired museum programs, we proposed the existing two-story building be renovated and a long multi-story educational building with a roof deck be added to the original structure. The proposed expansion would stretch the entire project the full depth of a city block to Sixth Street. The development of the facility was placed on hold due to inadequate funding.
