The project of the Polícia Judiciária new headquarters, located in the heart of Lisbon, resulted from a public competition held by IGFIJ. The main challenge of the project was to reinterpret the existing space, with respect for its surroundings. The building was conceived on a hierarchy of geometric recessions that reduces the impact on the urban surroundings. This volumetric approach led to the creation  of courtyards with natural light and ventilated spaces. The main concepts of the project development were: identity, functionality, security, flexibility and integration.
