Presidium of the Slovak Police
Mierová 6, Bratislava
Eugen Kramár, Štefan Lukačovič
1949 – 1951

The police complex consists of three differing volumes, arranged in an H-shaped floor plan. The main six-storey block runs parallel with Račianská ulice; its long facade surface is determined by the regular grid pattern of the simple windows. The point of entrance is emphasised with a protruding, slightly shifted glass area with a raised overhang and the foregrounded arm of the exterior staircase. The central part of the building is formed by the three-storey mass, joined on the opposite side by another six-storey wing with a covered terrace on the roof. Common to each of the blocks is a slightly recessed parterre with a row of pillars supporting the upper floors. The building has a somewhat chilly appearance, in common with many works of postwar Functionalism.
