Distinctive and secureNew build for the Command and Situation Centre of the Stuttgart Police HeadquartersThe monolithic shell of this two-storey edifice adjoins the existing building and exerts a stabilising effect on the highly diverse surroundings. Visible from the Pragsattel traffic hub, this bold structure forms a distinctive landmark against the backdrop of rolling hills.

The double-leaf masonry exterior of the ground floor houses all the services needed for the fully independent continuous operation of this energy efficient facility, projecting into the hillside on the north and forming the basis for the upper floor, which in turn features a significant overhang extending south toward the entrance yard of the main building.

On this storey, all operational areas are incorporated on a single floor. The skylight-based design provides a tall, sealed facade to the north, thereby dispensing with extensive security measures. Three window recesses in the main shell deliver additional natural light to the interior without providing a line of sight from outside.
