Notes
Survey number HAER CA-174-M
Building/structure dates: 1952 initial construction
Significance: The Fire Station, like the Cafeteria Building immediately to the east, is executed in the International Style and is one of the most interesting designs dating from Hughes Aircraft's plant expansion period. A clean, functional design, it is composed of two one-story rectangular volumes: a taller, larger block on the west containing garage area for fire fighting equipment, and a smaller east block containing offices and support spaces. The unequal horizontal masses are visually tied together by the slender vertical of the hose drying tower at the center of the composition.
