The building’s exterior design exuberantly expresses the project’s three uses through its stacking of rectangular masses and changes in material, colors and window patterns. Although the design can appear at first glance to consist of three boxes, a closer look shows that the fire station is a combination of two rectangular masses and that the apartment block sits on a pedestal that separates it from the squash court section, making for a total of five major rectangular forms. The interplay between all these boxes creates a variety of setbacks and projections.
