Village of Wheeling Station 23

Station 42 is built on a 3-acre property adjacent to residential neighbors with more than half the property located in wetlands, a water tower, a ComEd access drive, and a pump station. The allowable area to build the satellite Fire Station created a linear floor plan.  The patio off the kitchen was designed to face the wetlands and shield staff from the adjacent neighbors. The exterior appearance of the building, while residential, has a more rustic aesthetic due to the close proximity to wetlands and nature on the site.
