Fire Station No. 6 gaining notice nationwide
Word about Axiom's headquarters at the historic Fire Station No. 6 near downtown Houston has spread well beyond city limits.
Since moving into the station in late February, Axiom has been profiled by local websites CultureMap, Preservation Houston, Ultimate Montrose and Houston Press, as well as the Houston affiliates of NPR (KUHF 88.7) and ABC (KTRK-TV Ch. 13).
On the print side, the Houston Chronicle and Houston Business Journal newspapers also have covered the restored station, hailing it as a shining example of saving a historically significant structure and repurposing it for 21st century use.
And the buzz goes on.
The National Trust for Historic Preservation, which is based in Washington, D.C., published an online entry about Fire Station No. 6 on its blog site, preservationnation.org. The entry includes two slideshows and praises the building as "a beacon for historic adaptation done right."
Even Hollywood has an eye on Fire Station No. 6. A Houston-based location scout contacted Axiom about the prospect of the building becoming a set location for an energy documentary being produced by a Los Angeles-based video production company.
At this time, however, Axiom is sticking to its core business of creative communications, thank you very much. Happy Fourth of July!
