The Fire Station and Flats in Blyth Street, Brunswick, are of state architectural and historical Significance. The complex, a good example of the innovative work of the architectural firm Seabrook & Fildes, is a notable early example of Moderne architecture in Victoria. Of particular Significance to the Moreland area is the use of large areas of cream brick, which was first developed by Brunswick brickmaker John Glew in the 1860s. Whilst cream bricks had been used in several notable buildings in the locality from at least the 1860s, the Moderne movement brought them back into favour. The complex is also a relatively late example of on-site staff accommodation at fire stations.
