The police headquarters has a triangular, rounded off volume to fit the given site. One tip of the triangle is cantilevered to form an oversized garage entrance that monumentalizes the hectic movement of police cars as they leave the building with sirens. On top of that, the police offices are situated around a roof garden. On ground floor, adjaecent to the green park, one finds the public reception areas. The fašade has a texture of vertical lamellas to enhance the optical effect of the rounded off shape as one passes the building.
