Denton Fire Station No. 4 | Texas
KAS finished this much-needed, LEED Silver-certified fire station one month ahead of schedule and under budget.
When the City of Denton needed to replace an old fire station hailing from the 1960s, Kirkpatrick Architecture Studio stepped up to the challenge and employed the team’s vast fire station experience and lessons learned. Instead of demolishing the old station, the new station was built on a lot adjacent to the original Station No. 4, which now serves as storage for the fire department. Similar in design to its larger sister station, Denton No. 2, Station No. 4 encompasses 12,600 square feet and sleeps a crew of six. It houses four emergency vehicles which serve the rapidly growing northeast Denton neighborhoods. The exterior features a brick façade in keeping with the City’s established aesthetic. The fire station’s signature number “4” boldly faces out from the training tower. Inside, team members enjoy warm wooden accents as well as ample lighting from energy-saving windows. Station No. 4 achieved LEED Silver certification in 2020.
