JAMES ISLAND FIRE STATION

The design of this municipal building was strongly influenced by its residential surroundings. This “home” for the firemen began as a design representative of a typical suburban family residence. The traditional 2- car garage was altered to become a bay to accommodate the firefighting apparatus and equipment. A change in scale, coupled with use of more monumental materials such as brick, stucco, and split faced concrete block transformed the private suburban form into a public symbol that can comfortably adapt to its neighborhood setting.
