Criminal Investigation Headquarters
SSH completed the design of the Criminal Investigation Building located within the South Surra Ministries area.
The complex comprises a main office block, an auditorium with dormitories, and an interrogation building. Two levels of underground parking provide car parking spaces for 850 employees. The architectural massing is dynamic and clean in form. The five-storey office blocks are formed by two curved in plan parts that are joined by an atrium.
The canyon-shaped atrium is the focal space, showcasing dramatically changing volumes enriched by glazed elevators, free-standing towers, and bridges connecting both parts of the office block at various levels. The elevations are declined at both ends to become gradually inclined in the centre, emphasising the main entry to the building. The project site area is 30,000 sqm.
