The neoclassical block is now fronted by a squat oblong entrance pavilion and capped by a bronzed roof extension and has also undergone a significant interior reorganization by Stirling Prize-winning practice AHMM.

The building that faces the Thames from the Victoria Embankment is now officially known as New Scotland Yard. “Our New Scotland Yard preserves and showcases elements unique to the heritage of the Metropolitan Police whilst creating a robust headquarters building, fit for the 21st century in the heart of Westminster,” said AHMM director Paul Monaghan.

The pavilion is raised on a pale stone plinth that visually marries the addition with the Portland stone walls of the original building. Its curving glass walls are intended to convey a message of organizational transparency and create a “non-institutional” entrance.

The pavilion is also a memorial for officers who died in the line of duty, with an eternal flame and contemplation pool visible through the glazing. Lifts rise through a glazed void in the centre of the building to the roof pavilion and illuminated terraces on the eighth floor.

Alongside the entrance and rooftop pavilions, modest Portland stone extensions help to increase the building’s original floor area from 8,700 square metres to 12,000 square metres. Accents of colour are added through the peach- and bronze-toned louvres that cover the rear facade and the tiled splashbacks in the toilets.
