Archtober Building of the Day: Marine Company 1 Firehouse

12 October 2012 from 12pm to 1pm

Marine Company 1, a project for the Fire Department of New York City and the Hudson River Park Trust, is the last remaining fireboat company on the island of Manhattan. The site is located on Pier 53 at the edge of Segment 5 of the Hudson River Park in the West Village. Home to the new FDNY fireboat and staging area for marine operations and homeland security operations, FDNY MC1 is supported on an array of 200’ depth concrete piles. All services are concealed within the structure of the pier or the house itself. Technically and technology complex, the project brings together three distinct programs as a stack: an apparatus (fire truck) and naval staging area for the boat, a communal space for the company as well as private areas of rest and bathing.

A tour of the Marine Company 1 Firehouse will be led by Jon Dreyfous, AIA, from CR Studio Architects PC. Since joining CR Studio in 1996, Jon has been involved in an array of the firm’s award-winning projects, including the Marine Company1 Firehouse, the Eileen Fisher Store and Showroom, the Discovery Center, and the People Center at the American Museum of Natural History.
