Form and Function
Here are some final images of the Islip Fire Department project, another downtown renovation/retrofit by Bouler Architecture. The original building, a Mediterranean style from the 1920's, sorely needed to modernize in order for the fire department to house its fleet of trucks and to accommodate the volunteers. Even the bell tower was restored, bell included. Hopefully the trend of tearing down old structures to pave the way for the new can be quelled in light of the successful results of renovations like this one.
