Malibu Fire Station No. 71

Malibu, CA


Fire Station No. 71 is a new 6,086 SF facility built by the County of Los Angeles for the Los Angeles County Fire Department. The station is designed to accommodate six fire fighters in an individual dormitory setting. Other station features include two, drive-thru apparatus bays, command vehicle bay, administrative offices, kitchen, dining room, day room, physical training room, and the various support spaces required for a facility of this type. The design of the facility utilizes the apparatus bays as a buffer between the areas of the station more typically accessible to the public and those areas dedicated to the day-to-day living activities of the fire fighters. Site features include dual return access, secured fire fighter parking, storage building and an above ground fuel station. Sloped roof forms are used in conjunction with parapet areas designed to screen mechanical equipment. Standing seam metal roofing is used in a series of angled planes intended to accentuate the massing of the facility as well as conceal mechanical equipment.
