The global architecture firm Perkins+Will received the American Institute of Architects’ 2016 Build Design Honor Awards for Preston Hollow’s Fire Station No. 27.

The 23,600-square-foot fire station is one of four Dallas projects selected for the award by a jury of internationally recognized architects.

The fire station was chosen for the award because of its “strong organizing concept and celebratory story wall.”
