Scotland Yard, Metropolitan Police Service Authority Headquarters
Metropolitan Police Service Authority
A new public realm and a glazed entrance pavilion combine to create a welcoming and open face for the organisation, while the refurbished and extended Curtis Green Building houses a 21st century office working environment to suit ever changing needs.
A range of terraces and rooftop pavilion provide for a range of uses and make the most of views across the River Thames to London County Hall, Westminster Bridge and the London Eye. Glazed and lit internally, this new pavilion will gently glow in the nights sky to symbolises the 24/7 nature of the building and the organisation it holds.
The most challenging aspect of the project being the briefing process and multiple stakeholder engagement, however new ways of working were developed, alongside the provision of flexible office space.
This project gives the Metropolitan Police a wonderful opportunity to redefine its relationship with Londoners and London. With generous civic gestures and new landmark presence on the river front within Westminster, the building acts as a symbol for the MPS and its role in the city.
