The Land Port of Entry (LPOE), for the Department of Homeland Security is a new facility located in Hamlin Maine. This building has been designed to aid in the protection of the border crossing between Canada and the United States of America.
The design of the LPOE building is sensitive to the fabric of the local and regional architectural vernacular. The building emulates the materials and colors of the neighboring community. By drawing from these influences, the LPOE will present an inviting and welcoming atmosphere to travelers, as well as create harmony with the architectural esthetics of the local community. In addition the building will be designed to be thermally efficient by the use of proper cold climate and LEED design principals.
