SPOKANE PUBLIC RADIO
That's the inscription on an old plaque outside the former Fire Station #3 at the corner of Monroe and Sharp. This is more than the Spokane Public Radio station's new home. It is on the National Register of Historic Places … and a Spokane treasure. We enjoyed the challenges the project presented. We had to preserve the unique character of the building while at the same time creating a state of the art broadcast facility and an acoustically excellent performing arts venue.
This building has an especially compelling history. Firefighters who lived and worked in the building from the mid-1970s through '90s told SPR what life was like in the fire station. You can listen to their stories here.
