01 Oct Police Station Architecture Design Tips
What’s it going to cost? This is one of the inquiries that designers get posed to regularly. It’s particularly significant to police headquarters, whose development spending plans face the consistent open examination.
The test for modelers, accordingly, is to design a station that is both appealing and aware to citizens.
In my first post on police headquarters design, I discussed the significance of the contemporary police headquarters demonstrating a solid, yet agreeable face to respect its locale and possibly set a design standard for future offices. In what capacity would municipalities be able to make a community resource like this without spending a fortune?
A police headquarters has less open traffic than other city structures, for example, town corridors. The overall population once in a while or never observes numerous pieces of the police headquarters.
The stunt for designers includes giving more development dollars to regions that are exceptionally obvious to the network, at that point pulling back on materials and subtleties (yet not quality) in the less open regions.
Creative in Arlington Heights
Legat Architects worked intimately with a building survey advisory group to set gauges for materials and subtleties for the new police headquarters now under development in Arlington Heights, Illinois.
For the outside, more assets were apportioned toward the east, west, and south façades that face the network. These three sides include a brickwork façade with a stone base and curves, just as point by point windows.
They pay tribute to the noteworthy style of the neighboring town corridor and fire station that bookend the station. The town spared development dollars by embracing an increasingly utilitarian look on the less obvious back of the police headquarters.
Within the station breaks into three distinct zones: open, police, and open/police transitional zones.
First-floor open territories (e.g., passage vestibule, front work area, passageways, network room) bring through the memorable character of the outside. Among the subtlety’s guests will experience in these regions are stone, basic timber and wood support associated by steel plates and jolts, wood seats, noteworthy looking light fixtures, and custom cabinetry to show police memorabilia.
On the other hand, the storm cellar, a portion of the ground floor, and almost the majority of the subsequent floor are intended solely for police work—they don’t require indistinguishable memorable signals from the more open regions. For carefully police zones, we made a perfect, proficient look reliable with an excellent 21st-century office.
It’s a much-needed development from austere workplaces with desk areas stuck together, poor ventilation, and no normal light.
At that point there are the zones, for example, the front work area and records counter where police and open capacities cover. Here we determined completions and materials that progress between a noteworthy and practical stylish.
For example, when visitors approach the front work area, they experience contemporary innovations housed inside an increasingly notable fenced-in area. The light apparatuses around there overcome any issues—they show up more utilitarian than ceiling fixtures, however progressively brightening than the lighting utilized in the police capacities.
The Arlington Heights station steps the line among feel and spending plan by giving inhabitants an inviting, provincial civil structure, and giving law authorization staff an expert workplace.
