Creation of new buildings and refurbishment of an existing building to house the National Police and the Municipal Police.
A landmark building with a strong sense of identity, the former Saint Roch hospital is part of the history of the city of Nice. Its conversion into a police headquarters is deliberately designed to respect the past while looking to the future.
The future police headquarters will accommodate more than 2,000 national and municipal police officers, with 1,200 workstations. On the ground floor, the main building will house all the services provided by the two police forces (various formalities, lodging of complaints, municipal office, victim support centre, etc.) through a one-stop shop. The project includes a car park for officers’ vehicles (motor vehicles and bicycles).
The facades of the project are in keeping with the scale of the neighbourhood, respecting the controlled height of the buildings on the peripheral streets of the block and seeking to align them with the height of the existing cornices (eaves height) and fascias. The cornice that crowns the central building and the comb façades will also be used to crown the façades of the Dévoluy building, respectfully marking a unifying alignment.
