Hollenbeck Replacement Police Station
(# 301)
Category: Institutional / Educational
Images Description Credits
The new LAPD Hollenbeck Replacement Station in Boyle Heights was designed to exemplify the stations efforts to create an open, community-serving police force.  The architect’s intent was to strengthen the neighborhood’s civic center and highlight the community’s distinct tradition of artistic expression.

Significantly larger than the existing facility the new sustainable facility includes a 54,000 SF new main building, a 7,000 SF vehicle maintenance facility, and 115,000 SF parking structure.  The replacement station’s internal organization provides a cohesive sense of space for 200+ officers and staff members.

The exterior walls are highlighted by a staccato rhythm of rectangular windows and insets, while an open plaza sets off the striking public entrance.  The station’s layered-glass entry wall adds an artistic focal point to the community, while creating a welcoming public entrance.  The glass façade allows light and diffused views into the lobby by day, and glowing beacon by night.  The design also provides the necessary security while maintaining a sense of openness and energy.
