The City of Mercer Island was recently notified that the American Institute of Architects (AIA) has recognized its rebuilt Fire Station 92 with a national award, presented to project architects Miller Hull Partnership. The AIA intends its prestigious award program “to highlight exemplary projects that show the world the range of outstanding work architects create and highlight the many ways buildings and spaces can improve our lives.” Originally built in 1962 as a small volunteer station, FS92 was incrementally enlarged over time, but was considered seismically deficient by today’s building code standards and at high risk of damage in an earthquake. The new building, officially opened in 2015, provides much more usable space, and intentionally invites views into the apparatus bay from passersby outside, creating a positive and interactive connection with the community it serves.
