Armoury

317 Park Avenue
Constructed: 1913
Architect: Herbert E. Matthews

The crenellations and battlements on this building are symbolic of a medieval fortress, and were typical of government buildings at the time it was built - particularly those intended for military purposes. Perhaps the most striking features of the building are the continuous stone lintels and window wells which form a stark contrast with the red brick and the walls. The entrance is deeply recessed within a segmental arch bearing the name Armoury in relief. The overall effect of the building is one of strength and solidity, which suits its military purpose.
