SvR supported the Miller Hull architecture team with landscape architecture and civil engineering services on Mercer Island’s newest fire station. The team developed a replacement facility that improves conditions for firefighters and makes a strong visual invitation for visitors to this civic building. Site features include drought tolerant native and edible landscaping, a subtle “ladder” paver pattern along the main entry, streetscape improvements and new utility connections. Flush-set LED strips in the sidewalk crossing the main driveway carry the ladder-theme across the site and provide nighttime illumination for pedestrians. The LED strips also function as warning lights, turning red to indicate a fire truck is preparing to leave the station.
