The Rancho Viejo Fire Station program included both a volunteer wing and a paid staff wing. The design challenge was to integrate these two wings and to make a very large station feel like home. On the exterior, the scale of the station is smaller near Rancho Viejo Boulevard to maintain a neighborhood feeling. The large volume of the apparatus bay is at the rear of the station, farthest from the street. Sleeping rooms are also kept away from the street to reduce noise and lights.
