Glenview Police Department Headquarters

 

 

 

JOB NAME:
Glenview Police Department Headquarters
LOCATION:
Glenview, IL
ARCHITECT:
Wight & Company
JOB DESCRIPTION:
The goal for the new Glenview, IL., police headquarters was to create a civic building that would use traditional materials and massing to project a strong sense of permanence, without excessive frippery. To accomplish this, SRBL Architects had Illinois Masonry Corp. employ a palate of masonry materials. The building uses red face brick with Indiana limestone fascias, copings, granite panel trim and sills. The design incorporates the traditional sense of weight and permanence that Glenview desired, while allowing for a modern interpretation that transcended historical styles. Masonry was the key to this timeless but strong appearance. The limestone and granite provide sharp knife edges of the volumes and openings, while the face brick provides warmth and richness. The keys to the selection of masonry materials were strength and simplicity. Additionally, veneer limestone and granite were used on the exterior of a large volume used for the building entry. These materials create the weighty sense of a massive stone cube that appears to split the adjacent brick and stone wings in two. At the same time, the stone materials appear to float above the glass curtain wall entry. It is a strong belief that no materials would have held the same sense of strength and solidity, while alternately appearing heavy and crisp, if masonry had not been used.

This new facility constructed of solid masonry will endure a very long time due to the solid construction carried out by Illinois Masonry Corp. This new village hall was designed and constructed with the finest building materials using brick and CMU back-up with cast stone trim and copings. The main entry utilizes a large arched masonry window. The cast stone trim adds horizontal lines to break up the large mass of brick but creates the traditional elegant features of the colonial style with the large roof copings and masonry gables with the cast stone ornamental globes.

Lisle Village Hall
LOCATION:
Lisle, IL

JOB DESCRIPTION:
The 36,400 square foot, two-story Lisle Village Hall was designed to accommodate government administration functions in anticipation of future village growth, and efficiently house the municipality's business office, along with its building and zoning, human resources, finance and MIS/GIS departments. The Prairie Style building with a stepped-down height confronting a local park, was sited to provide a visual end to an avenue leading from the community's downtown business district.
