Austrian interior ministry have decided to redesign the birthplace of Adolf Hitler into a police station, who was born there in 1889.
According to the details, the Austrian authorities have presented a winning plan to redesign Hitler’s birth place into a police station.
A design by Austrian architects Marte.Marte beat 11 competitors in an interior ministry tender, officials announced on Tuesday.
The refurbishment is expected to be complete around the end of 2022 and will cost around $5.6 million.
A suggestion it might be demolished was shelved, and the government announced in November that police would use the building. It will house the regional command and a police station.
“Some people might ask is this the right use for this, putting the police in there? It is the downright most suitable use,” Interior Minister Karl Nehammer said.
The three-level building was rented by Austria’s interior ministry since 1972 to prevent its misuse. It also facilitated various charitable organizations.
The building stood empty after a care center for adults with disabilities moved out in 2011.
