David and Eli Hess, Selected Artists for Fire Station 10

By Editorial Team on September 23, 2019

A new state-of-the-art Fire Station 10 is coming to Rosslyn as part of The Highlands, a mixed-use development project by Penzance. As part of the project, artists David and Eli Hess were commissioned to develop a site-specific work of public art for the façade of the station.

Inspired by the history and function of the station, the design consists of a larger-than-life bronze fire hose nozzle with twisting spirals of stainless steel representing a powerful spray of water that will be illuminated at night. The sculpture is designed to be a beacon honoring the fire department and reflecting its long-standing work in the surrounding community while enhancing the public space within The Highlands.
