San Jose Fire Station #17

San Jose, California, USA | Glass, Lighting, Metal | 22’ H x 2’ W | 2008

Overview

  • Fire Station 17 is a new two-story, 6,500-square-foot, single company facility for the City of San Jose. The use of metal roofing and siding materials and stucco blend with Gordon Huether’s public art piece, a re-purposed laser-cut, mirror-polished aluminum fuel tank inset with dichroic glass, that functions as a lively beacon on the busy boulevard streetscape and an icon that contributes to the identity of the fire station and the community.
  • By day, sunlight interacts with the glass to create moving patterns of colored light on the ground. By night, lit from within, the fuel tank glows.
