Old Police House

Hyde Park, London

The Royal Parks in London are unique spaces. The offer personal space for Londoners to relax, play and enjoy in an otherwise bustling city.

The Old Police House in Hyde Park is instantly recognisable to visitors to the park. The police house was built in the 1870’s and remains a working police station to this day. It is sometimes described as the beating heart of the park.

As a listed building, we were required to replace the old sliding sash windows in the Old Police House whilst retaining the look of the old historic elevations of the building. We had to match the sightlines of existing windows and doors. We worked closely with local conservation to design and approve replacement windows. We accommodated the working police by installing only outside of working ours – mainly at weekends – leaving the station ready for use on the Monday morning.

We successfully completed the contract over several months before leaving the Old Police House looking as it had done before, but with modern windows and doors installed. We have since replaced windows and doors across many of the historic buildings in the Royal Parks.
