North County Fire Protection District Fire Station 5 in Bonsall is 8,931-square-foot facility. It was built on a 2.7 acre site in a largely rural area of San Diego County and is designed to accommodate seven firefighters.
Circulation within the station is designed around core work and living spaces in order to maximize daylight opportunities for more traditionally occupied areas.
The station was designed using a combination of plaster and stone veneer in keeping with the dominant materials of the adjacent homes. Simplified Craftsman detailing was added in selected areas to help reduce the scale of the building.
