Hollenbeck Police Station
This new facility was constructed on the site of the existing 1958 station. The surrounding neighborhood has a rich and layered history that has infused it with a distinct tradition of artistic expression. Local murals and brightly colored houses and gardens speak to the area’s creative spirit, and ultimately played a major role in the design of the new facility. It was important to the community that the building maintains its central location and that the new design help transforms it into part of the neighborhood’s creative fabric. The project’s art program includes a large mural that reflects the history of the neighborhood and physically bridges the station to an adjacent public park area.
