Project Description

Built in 1896 in Jersey City, the firehouse was the original home to JCFD’s Hook & Ladder No. 3. In 2009, after serving the community for over 100 years, the firehouse was purchased and repurposed as the headquarters of Brunelleschi Construction, a company owned by father-son duo, Alfonso and Anthony Carrino. Fast forward ten years and Anthony jumped on the opportunity to purchase the firehouse from his father and remodel it into a residential loft for his fiancée and recently adopted pup!

The approximately 800-square-foot roof deck is an incredible outdoor space featuring modular Bison Cumaru Wood Tiles supported by Versadjust Pedestals. Above the wood tiles rests an outdoor kitchen by Urban Bonfire and furniture from Article. The entire renovation of the firehouse was filmed and created into a digital series, "The Firehouse Project." Episode 07 of the series, titled Roof Deck, aired on TheBuild on May 20, 2020 and features the installation of the Bison Roof Deck System atop the renovated firehouse – click here to check it out!
