Pine Island, Florida (March 6, 2020) – Visitors to Pine Island this season will enjoy the vibrant design of the new Matlacha Fire Station #4. Designed by Art Castellanos, AIA, of Castellanos + Tramonte Architects, the quaint style reflects the character and architecture of nearby fishermen shacks and island charm. Whimsical murals designed by local Matlacha artist Leoma Lovegrove adorn the exterior with functional interior features that include community room, kitchen, sleeping quarters, exercise rooms, contamination room and two fire apparatus bays. Castellanos worked with Vantage Construction Services, LLC as the design-build team with TDM Consulting, Inc. and Passarella & Associates, Inc. providing civil engineering and environmental consulting services respectively. Located at 3500 SW Pine Island Rd., the new station will allow for better response times.
