Heilbronn police headquarters


As part of the expansion of the police headquarters in Heilbronn, the outdoor facilities and the access road, including the car parks, were redesigned. The site is also home to the ‘Heilbronn Capital’ artwork by documenta artist Prof Thomas Lenk, which has now been reconstructed in a different location. The two associated water basins now shine in a bright orange colour and have also been repositioned to allow access by the fire brigade for both the police headquarters and the neighbouring tax office. A central green space echoes the artist’s concept and the paved areas are blended with the open spaces so that the proportion of sealed surfaces is kept to a minimum.

The project was developed in collaboration with the architects from Atelier30.
