Keir Alexander, a first-year student at Liverpool University, designed this project with the title 'Cop Shop'. The idea was to offer a more community-based police station that would act as a beacon and help police/community relations on a small site near the centre of Liverpool.
Inspiration came from the Japanese system of Koban police boxes.
