San Francisco Fireboat Station No. 35

San Francisco, CA | Fire Services

San Francisco Fire Department’s Station 35 will accommodate three fire suppression boats, a dive boat, and marine rescue craft. The station will be constructed on top of a floating barge to provide safe and immediate access to the fireboats, irrespective of the tide, or sea level rise due to global warming. It will be permanently moored adjacent to the historic Mediterranean style fire station along the San Francisco Embarcadero. The new station has been designed “of our time”, yet will be respectful of the existing pier and bulkhead buildings within the Embarcadero National Historic District.

Client: City of San Francisco
