A friendly face for modern policing in a contemporary, efficient and safe police station
Opus and NZ Police were awarded an ACENZ Silver Award of Excellence for this project.
Retaining the protected heritage facades is a gesture to the Gisborne community and the Edwardian-flavoured heritage streetscape. New facades were designed to be contemporary in style, but compatible in material and proportion.
The main building provides three floor plates to maximise accommodation within the site footprint and height limit. An adjacent two-storey car park structure provides the necessary car park and yard facilities.
