National Police Station
Following the purchase of a suitable site for the new Group and District office of the National Police, the programme was considerably expanded with an indoor shooting range and corresponding facilities. An important basic principle in the design was to bring the schedule of requirements - which was strict for this location - in line with the elements that determine the urban structure. On the one hand, the aim was to create an independent building, in line with the range of detached buildings; on the other a transparent demarcation of the site, with annexes incorporated in the encircling walls, thus safeguarding the private character of the adjacent residential gardens. The main building is split into two, with the offices at the front and the other facilities such as the cell blocks, theory room and canteen at the rear of the building. The corridor acts as a spine for the building: encompassing, always recognisable and ensuring that location and relation are recognised.
