The Parker Police Headquarters is centrally located in the heart of Parker’s commercial district. The new L-shaped single story building fronts two main arterial roads. One wing houses the administrative, records, investigations and 911 Communication Center and patrol type functions and the other wing houses the suspect processing, evidence intake, small crime lab and evidence storage.

The building’s configuration and street frontage help screen a motor court designed for a large volume of staff and fleet vehicles. The administrative wing is terminated by a welcoming public lobby that captures dramatic front range views from Pikes Peak to Longs Peak.

The primary architectural gesture, a tall light monitor, runs the entire length of the building, bringing daylight into all of the central spaces during the day and illuminating them at night.

The materials palette consists of a modern ensemble of brick, CMU and stone veneers with generous clerestory lighting, exposed steel framing and wood elements. The durable masonry materials provide security and a sense of permanence. The lighter and more transparent materials respond to the client’s desire to allow the building to feel open and inviting.
