An elongated Gaudiesque form inspired by local medieval stone towers is Mestia’s new Police Station. Winding stretched machicolations, the windows, dominate its facades.

‘The project is situated in the heart of the old town of Mestia, next to the newly built city-hall. Its tower-like shape pays homage to the medieval stone towers which are traditional to Mestia’s mountainside region. The facade is comprised of prefabricated textured concrete and large openings which offer a maximum of transparency.’
