Town of Vienna Police Station

Enhancing Civic Pride Through Architecture
Vienna, Virginia

We are designing a new 29,441-square-foot police headquarters facility for the Town of Vienna, Virginia. The existing police building will be demolished and the existing site will be redeveloped to include the new police headquarters building. In addition, approximately 1,800 square feet of space in the town hall currently occupied by police functions will be relocated to the new facility and the town hall space will be renovated to meet other town office needs.

The design team conducted a conceptual design workshop with the police department in order to determine the appropriate adjacency and stacking relationships between the functional departments.  This exercise resulted in three options which were developed for a preliminary review by the police department which culminated in a selected option.

As part of the police facility design, it was extremely important to understand neighborhood and site context around the building. It was also important to study existing architecture in the town, as well as identifying any design precedents that might apply to the police facility design. With this in mind, we conducted a series of work sessions with a goal of working collaboratively with municipal and community stakeholders to develop a design direction for the new police station that would acknowledge context while enhancing civic pride.
