Danish practice presents competition entry to modernise Swedish police headquarters 


Lidköping Police Building is LETH & GORI’s proposal in the open competition for a new police headquarters and public parking facilities in Lidköping, Sweden. The project site is an open square on the border of Lidköping’s historical urban plan from 1672.

The site is an important entrance point to the historic city and one of the design objectives of the competition was how to emphasise this.

LETH & GORI’s proposal is a hybrid project attempts to find a balance between building and urban space. The police building is lifted and perforated to create a series of different public spaces.

In addition the building integrates four existing buildings that are programmed with functions related to the local community. This transforms the traditionally closed Police Building into a building that supports and celebrates the local community and the life in the city.

LETH & GORI were part of a collaborative team that devised the concept for Marthagården Day Care Centre in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen, previously featured on WAN.
