Sage and Coombe was commissioned to design a new marine firehouse and adjacent harbor as part of a nationwide program to improve port security, partly funded by the Department of Homeland Security. Working with the requirements that the pier maintain public access on all sides and necessary sightlines, of public pier access and zoning view-corridors, the new facility was designed using sustainable materials and strategies as a model for future New York City projects. Respectful of the tradition of firehouse architecture, the design is a study in public and private spaces rendered in shifting volumes of red and white.
