South End Station, Engine 22, City of Boston Fire Department

-A A +A
1960, Campbell and Aldrich. 700 Tremont St.

Set amid the red brick, brownstone, and granite row houses and a Victorian-style church, this one-story white brick fire department station strikes a modern note, a classic example of its moment. Its three open bays are set back from the building line, providing direct contact with the fire engines within. Gray metal fluted pilasters divide the bays, and the whole is topped with a low-hipped roof. The facade consists of grated windows (four on one side of the entrance, two on the other), with a circular pattern on dark gray brick. A discrete square white brick tower adjoins neighboring row houses.
