Recognizing the need for a greater law enforcement presence and the opportunity for great civic architecture, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) and the Department of Design and Construction (DDC) commissioned Rafael Viñoly Architects to design a station house for Staten Island’s first new precinct in decades, the 121st Precinct.

The new police station in Seville is a detached construction that leans on the southeast edge of the site and opens up towards a circular street. The building is shaped as an irregular four-pointed star, which determines the image of the building, inspired in a panoptical model. A landscaped strip then surrounds the construction. This natural belt is extended up to the exterior fence and it naturally embraces the wings of the building. This way, the proposed volume achieves an extensive facade length with a maximum number of rooms opening towards the outdoor spaces in between the wings.

The relocation of the police station to the edge of the city will give a strong impulse to the future development of the harbour site. The judicious positioning and dimensioning of its compact, floating office volume ensures that it fits in with the structure and scale of the former harbour area.

The space requirement program requested by the developer (Townhall) included all the departments, public and restricted use, necessary for the proper operation of a facility of this nature. In the office we thought to incorporate a public space which could be used by the neighborhood as a multipurpose space that would allow us to provide greater flexibility to the building.

The general design of the project answers mainly to the adequacy of its to the environment. The building is set back from the property line leaving a free space that works as a public urban development and allowing the pedestrian access. This gives continuity to the city in order to promote the rapprochement of the citizen to a public building, by tradition, used to be considered as closed and hermetic place.

Like many towns in El Vallès, in the metropolitan area of Barcelona, Palau-solità has tripled its population since the 1980s and extended by means of single-family houses and low-rise apartment blocks. In this context, a public building may be designed to give the main streets in the fabric an urban, civic character or to fit in with the series of warehouses, shopping centres and franchises that form the periphery of this sprawling urbanization.

Given the reduced program size and the location of the land parcel, the idea was to insert most of the program elements in a high vertical volume. Which set on a street angle will stand as an emblematic tower. The “special” elements of the program will have volumes of their own. They strain the composition from one end of the parcel to the other with glass walls. These spaces contain the ground floor and the first level and create a pedestal from where the rest of the masses stand on.

The project is situated in the heart of the old town of Mestia, next to the newly built city-hall. Its towerlike shape pays homage to the medieval stone towers which are traditional to Mestia’s mountainside region. The facade is comprised of prefabricated textured concrete and large openings which offer a maximum of transparency.
