Swedish Police Building – design by LETH & GORI, Sweden

3 Jan 2012

Lidköping Police Headquarters Building

Location: Sweden

Architects: LETH & GORI

Lidköping Police Building is LETH & GORI’s proposal in the open competition for a new police headquarter and public parking facilities in Lidköping, Sweden. The project site is an open square on the border of Lidköping’s historical urban plan from 1672. The site is an important entrance point to the historic city and one of the design objectives of the competition was how to emphasize this.

LETH & GORI’s proposal is a hybrid project that balances between building and urban space. The police building is lifted and perforated to create a series of different public spaces. In addition the building integrates four existing buildings that are programmed with functions related to the local community. This transforms the traditionally closed Police Building into a building that supports and celebrates the local community and the life in the city.
