Following the successful collaboration with the City of Hollywood on the Fire Station 31 project, Stephen Boruff, AIA Architects + Planners, Inc. was commissioned to design a replacement for the City of Hollywood Fire Rescue Station No. 5.
This project, like Station 31, is one of a series of projects aimed at both strengthening Hollywood’s infrastructure and facilitating the physical transformation of the city. The site, occupied by existing Utility Service Center buildings, posed a different set of design challenges then 31, but offered similar opportunities for the betterment of the area. The building architecture and palette respond more to a large scale direction for the City of Hollywood as opposed to a localized context, employing a contemporary derivative of classic Mediterranean influences, which is becoming associated with the Hollywood’s identity as a City. The neighboring sites are largely industrial, and do not establish a clear context, enabling the new fire station to break from its surroundings and be part of the new aesthetic for the City of Hollywood.
