警察局原来设在温莎市政厅的地下室。不过很遗憾,一场袭击温莎的飓风摧毁了原来的历史建筑,也毁坏了原来局促的警察局。Roth Sheppard建筑师事务所接受了委托,设计一座独立的建筑,作为警察局的新总部。

Roth Sheppard建筑师事务所提议的新基地有助于在小镇内形成一个未来市民园区,还与镇上的警察局建立了视觉联系。温莎警察局与社区休闲中心共享同一个基地、车辆入口、停车场和会议室。Roth Sheppard建筑师事务所选择这样的设计是为了利用中心的位置和原有的设施。

新建筑与温莎的商业与住宅中心很近,在主街上就能清楚地看到。建筑由两个倾斜的金属结构组成,这两个结构内容纳了警察局独立的功能空间。一个预制的金属建筑内容纳的是“不必要的”储存和支持空间,而“必要的”操作空间和办公室则设在另一个有着醒目的透明大厅和砌体基座的金属建筑内。

两座金属建筑交叉的地方是警察局的交通流线中心,这里通向两座建筑中所有的区域,宽敞的走廊也是一个会面的空间。

这座由Roth Sheppard建筑师事务所设计的当代建筑位置显著,在设计中考虑了城镇未来的需要。温莎警察局是科罗拉多州温莎这座小乡村城镇新地标和新开始。


The Windsor Police Department is a facility located within a small community of just 20,000 people. The new building by Roth Sheppard Architects satisfies the community’s needs for a new police station, and optimizes the space, taking advantage of available context to be an even broader asset to the local community.

The police department had previously been located in the basement of Windsor’s Town Hall. Unfortunately, the original, though cramped, quarters were destroyed when a tornado touched down in Windsor and devastated the historic building. To take advantage of a somber situation, Roth Sheppard Architects was commissioned to design a freestanding building to be the new headquarters of the police department.

The new site was proposed by Roth Sheppard Architects to encourage the formation of a future civic campus for the small town, and visually establish the police department’s presence in town. The Windsor Police Department shares a site, vehicular entry, parking and meeting room space with the Community Recreation Center. Roth Sheppard Architects chose this placement to take advantage of its central location, as well as existing amenities.

The new building is clearly visible from Main Street and near the commercial and residential center of Windsor. It is composed of two sloped metal structures that contain separate programs within the police department. A pre-engineered metal building is the location of “nonessential” storage and support, while the “essential” operations and offices are held within a metal building with an eye-catching transparent lobby and masonry base.

At the intersection of the two metal buildings is the circulation center of the police department. From there, all areas of both buildings can be accessed, and the widened corridor functions as a meeting space as well.

The contemporary building by Roth Sheppard Architects is prominently located and considers the town’s future needs in its placement and design. The Windor Police Department is a new icon and a new beginning for the small rural town in Colorado.
