A highly anticipated project and “a national priority” according to the government.

The police station in Les Mureaux (40 miles west of Paris) was merely a family house when it was turned into offices for the local police, in 1983. The project that we designed in 2011 won the national competition for this highly expected new facility. Our client - the French Government - even called it "a national priority" among its list of future police stations. The construction of the new building started in february 2014.

The new police station is at the heart of a diverse and evolving urban fabric, combining commercial buildings, places of worship, collective housing and pavilions.
Much to our dismay, in may 2016, shortly after "his" police station had been inaugurated by the Minister of Home Affairs, police Commander Jean-Baptiste Salvaing, 42, and his wife Jessica Schneider were stabbed to death at their nearby home. The murderer intended to take revenge for his prosecution as a terrorist group member, and claimed he commited this crime on behalf of a terrorist organisation.
