Haverhill Police Station

The 31,000 square foot Haverhill police station is built on a site previously cleared for urban renewal but never developed; a goal was to revitalize this section of the City. The public entrance is placed at the end of the building facing City Hall across a public park to acknowledge the public nature of the building. The exterior materials - brick and granite - acknowledge the traditional materials used in Haverhill’s older buildings. Yet, the contemporary design expresses the nature of the activities within. The facility houses publicly accessible spaces, office spaces, and high security and detention spaces.

Location: Haverhill, MA
