Police Station in Seville

Police Station in Seville

Seville

2006-2009

The display of the programme for this Police Station in Seville in a star shaped plan, as a panoptic, has determined the image of the building. As high-rise dwelling buildings surround the building, it’s representative image towards the city is intended by means of a horizontal and extended volume that does note seem to touch the ground. A continuous suspended wall made of white concrete wraps the perimeter of the building. In this way, the glass is sheltered from the harsh sunlight with different depths for the different orientations. The programme is organized in the four peaks of the star with the public areas all of them provided with natural light though the long and shaded facade. A patio-lightwell, built with blue ceramics, crosses vertically the two levels of the building. The lower one hosts the internal areas that are partially built underground and surrounded by a green slope that borders the star shaped volume.
