2020 Hawkes Bay/Gisborne Architecture Awards Winner

Hastings Police Station

This complex project demonstrates how careful planning, good access to natural light, consideration of acoustics, and built-in flexibility can enhance a workplace and improve social outcomes. Internal planning was carefully considered and benefitted from consultation between client and architect, and this process has been the catalyst for a desired cultural shift within the client organisation. Both figuratively and literally, the building illuminates the work done by Hastings police. An atrium disperses natural light throughout the building and provides connection between the public counter and circulation spaces within the station. Street-level glazing allows visual permeability and demystifies the inner workings of the police station.
