Regional Police Station Nijmegen by Jeanne Dekkers Architectuur: A New Police Station Building with An Austere Blue Volume

Regional Police Station Nijmegen By Jeanne Dekkers Architectuur 6

Located in Nijmegen with 12.000 m² in size, Regional Police Station Nijmegen is a 1998-project by Jeanne Dekkers Architectuur. The goal of this project is to create a new police station building with complete facilities that open to the public to introduce the police station to the world. The building is also designed with an austere blue volume to accommodate the office space.

This new building rest on columns that used to preserve the historical hollow heritage. These columns rise from the ground of the building to support the parking decks. There is also a ridge that connects the street to the white deck that houses facilities open to the public while the office space is accommodated by an austere blue volume and appears to hover awesomely in midair.

A glass-enclosed atrium can be found at the heart of the building, interconnecting all functions and floors. At the corners of the buildings, the circulation routes are completed by eye-catching pyramidal skylights that provide the routes with warm daylight. The blue and silver presence of the building is a clear reference to the police force.
