O'Hare's ARFF Station No. 2 is designed to maximize user performance by means of optimized spatial organization. Composed as a series of zones, the spaces are strategically layered in modes of extracurricular activity, sleeping-quarters, and rescue dispatch. These defined zones respond to one another by shifting to create privacy, sound barriers, and daylight opportunities.
