Project: Fire Station No. 2
Location: Miami, Florida
The appearance of Fire Station No.2 is significant as a reflection of architectural tastes and urban expansion in Miami during the 1920’s. Fire Station No.2 is an excellent example of the Mediterranean Revival style as evidence through the articulation of its elevations and the application of decorative ornament. The building is architecturally noteworthy for the use of stylistic features and ornamental details which classify it as a representative structure in the Mediterranean Revival mode.
Although there were several fire stations built incorporating the Mediterranean Revival details, Fire Station No.2 is one of only two remaining stations. A Historical Architectural and Structural Report was prepared by William B Medellin Architect P.A. requested by the City of Miami.
