Koban in Kumamoto, Japan by Klein Dytham architecture

Friday, February 17th, 2017

Article source: Klein Dytham architecture 

Klein Dytham architecture’s Koban forms part of the celebrated Kumamoto Artpolis Program. The program was established in the late 1980s by Morihiro Hosokawa, then Governor of Kumamoto Prefecture but later Japan’s Prime Minister, to increase the quality of public architecture in the region. Arata Isosaki was appointed the program’s commissioner, and he matched architects with projects for new public buildings, either by direct appointment or by arranging design competitions. The program provided the fairly remote region with world-class architecture, including masterworks by such giants of the Japanese scene as Tadao Ando, Toyo Ito, Kazuyo Sejima, and Kazuo Shinohara.

Police Station in Salt, Spain by Josep Ferrando + Sergi Serrat

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

The site

The new police station is located on the outskirts of the neighborhood in a zone reserved for council buildings. The proposal is placed in a pre-existing grove of magnificent beech trees that determine the main decisions for the project. The main building mass is concentrated at the north end of the site, in the unoccupied area, while the car park is organized around the grove. The remainder of the site forms a green cushion that separates the building from the road becoming a transition space for the visitors.

POLICE STATION in Seville, Spain by Paredes Pedrosa Arquitectos

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

Article source: Paredes Pedrosa Arquitectos

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.

Police Station and Multipurpose Space in Xixona, Spain by Daniel Martí i Pérez & Natàlia Ferrer Bernabeu

Monday, December 10th, 2012

Article source: Daniel Martí i Pérez & Natàlia Ferrer Bernabeu

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.

Fuencarral-Ei Pardo Police Station in Madrid, Spain by Voluar Arquitectura

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Article source: Voluar Arquitectura

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.

Police station in Barcelona, Spain by MIZIEN

Article source: MIZIEN

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.
