Full of history, Logan City Fire Station has requested a local museum to display items, photographs, and stories. The community will have free access to the space to learn and be inspired. Simple curved walls and wayfinding will help the community understand the space efficiently.
A 1902 horse-drawn fire wagon is displayed next to a large, historical photo. A large timeline using light wood and resin tells the history of Logan City’s Fire Department starting in the early 1800’s.
One thing I know is that children love firemen and I wanted to incorporate hands-on activities for them to do. They wouldn’t be able to touch the 1902 fire wagon or the 1924 fire engine but taking a fire truck down to the level of children would allow them to sit in the driver seat of a fire truck and imagine safely. I ruled that water would not be allowed in the museum due to the lack of employees and time, so included old fire hoses that can be unraveled from the wheel. A scaled-down fire locker is placed with firefighter uniforms fit for children.
