St. Louis Police Precincts 1 & 3

St. Louis, Missouri

St. Louis Police Precinct

The Challenge

The St. Louis Police Precincts wanted new facilities that would create unity between the community and police department, correcting perceptions that the two are not in sync. The precincts are a symbol of peace, fostering engagement in the communities.

Both Precincts are similar in program and share a prototype design with flexibility in the open office layout. Precinct 1 required a police helicopter pad on a site bounded by trees, roads and power lines. Precinct 3 is located next to a steep drop-off to an existing creek. M+H tackled both challenges with the designs.

The Solution

Through our creative design we wanted to encourage police engagement both internally and within the community in a more positive manner. The open office space, access to natural light and fitness areas will promote increased productivity and higher morale. A community room is included to nurture positive interactions and help mend the current relationship between police and the public.
