Project Description

Beaufort, NC is a small town established in 1709 and noted as the 3rd oldest town in North Carolina. In 2012, Beaufort was ranked as “America’s Coolest Small Town.”

Downtown Beaufort historic district buildings define a character mix of Roman and Early American Architecture. SCN Architects focus and design intent is to blend the new Fire Department building with the old town feel and building character, but with a twist of a modern material and contemporary look to express the fast and growing population and the progress of the city which then makes the building character transitional.

The main focal point of the new building is the 30 foot main entry tower, as it defines the old downtown feel and character, and projects the strong leadership and stability of the town. Arches, key stones, cast stones, and clerestory windows are some of the architectural details that were incorporated to give a more historic character to the building.
