About CR architecture + design
- CR architecture + design (previously Cole + Russell Architects) is an employee-owned architecture firm specialized in government, commercial, education, hospitality, housing and retail design founded in 1982. Headquartered in Cincinnati with regional offices in Denver and Roanoke, Virginia, CR delivers architectural, engineering, branding and interior design services nationwide to transform ordinary spaces into extraordinary places.
CR’s Government Design Group focuses on the planning and design of fire, emergency and public safety facilities. We have successfully designed nearly 100 fire station projects in 24 states. We understand the importance of firefighter preparedness and as a result, developed our Training by Design concept in 1998. Our station designs integrate training components to accommodate such exercises as high-angle rescue, ladder evolutions, hose advancement, rappelling, confined space rescue and more.
