Fire house facade at 400 Mass – part 2

My personal opinion is that the firehouse could have been integrated better. See below.

My edited photo is a little sloppy – but you get the drift. Agree? Disagree?

    disagree about the edit, only because it blends into the firehouse, without actually being the firehouse. If it were a different color entirely i’d probably support.

    this is why smaller is better . . except that density is also awesome because without it there would be no critical mass.

    density + variation in the streetscape = ideal.

    I could see perhaps another color. Maybe a slate grey. However I am firmly of the opinion that 400 Mass multi-color stripe patterning wrapping around the firehouse on both sides wasn’t a good choice. The entire project could have been more aesthetically pleasing had the other portion of the 3 story structure been designed to complement the facade of the firehouse better.
