Station 45 architect honored

The Roaring Fork Fire Rescue Station 45 designed by Charles Cunniffe Architects won an American Institute of Architects (AIA) Colorado Award. 

Located in Snowmass, Station 45 honors the architectural context and vernacular of its slope-side setting in a contemporary design and integrates affordable housing to respond to specific community challenges.

“Architects are in high demand as people everywhere re-examine their surroundings and raise the expectation of buildings to support health, wellness, and environmental impact,” said AIA Colorado CEO Mike Waldinger, honorary AIA, in a statement. “These awards show how firms in Colorado are accepting that challenge in bold and innovative ways.”
