The Golden Grove project established a new Police Station and Patrols Base and a much needed identifiable Police presence in the Golden Grove area. The station is located on a very prominent site on the Golden Way in Golden Grove. Our aim for this project was to imbue the station with an image which was eye catching, had civic qualities, was welcoming, had solidity and strength, and had some residential qualities to relate it to its Golden Grove Community. The use of ‘floating’ metal clad fascias supported by stone elements created a combination of warmth, solidity and residential qualities from the stone, and modernity and sophistication from the fascias. The cantilevers of the roof provide visual drama and strength.
