Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM) has been chosen to redesign London's new police headquarters. AHMM's winning design envisages a police headquarters that will be more open and accessible and will help the Met to reconnect with the public, whilst respecting the heritage of the Whitehall Conservation Area in which it is sited.
Key design features include a new public entrance pavilion, extensions to the building itself and the creation of public open spaces. The world-famous revolving sign will be retained as well as the Eternal Flame and Roll of Honour, currently located at New Scotland Yard in Victoria.
"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," commented Paul Monaghan, Director, Allford Hall Monaghan Morris. "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."
