The police station in Molenbeek, Belgium was designed by Architect Emmanuel Bouffioux. It is surrounded by many homes, a school and an events space which includes a football stadium and an Olympic swimming pool. That’s why it was essential to take the appearance into account when building the police station, creating a building that is aesthetically pleasing for residents.
Designing a building for the local police that provides services of authority and security proved to be a real challenge in terms of functionality and symbolism. The design had to reflect a strong image to represent the police force, and at the same time it had to be visually appealing so that the residents of the neighborhood were happy with it.
