AHMM wins competition for new home of London's Metropolitan Police Service

Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) has been announced as the winner of a design competition for the new headquarters building for the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) in London. Hosted by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the competition centres on the redevelopment of the Curtis Green Building on the Victoria Embankment which the MPS will be populating in 2015. The service is currently located at New Scotland Yard.

AHMM’s winning proposal incorporates a new public entrance pavilion, extensions to the existing building form and the creation of public open spaces. The revolving sign that has become synonymous with the MPS will be relocated from the New Scotland Yard site to the new headquarters at Victoria Embankment, which will be known as Scotland Yard.

Paul Monaghan, Director, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris said: “We are delighted to have won the competition to design the new HQ for the Metropolitan Police within the historic setting of the Curtis Green building. This is a very important project for AHMM with the opportunity to work with one of the most significant and longest established law enforcement bodies in the world. We look forward to working with the Metropolitan Police Service to develop a building that supports them in their changing role within the city.”
