Sculptor Richard Kuöhl designed the ceramic elements of the station house. 2004/5 an extension of Davidwache on the backside was added. The building is known from numerous movies and TV series, and it was called Germany's best known police station. Paul McCartney and Pete Best had to spend a night at the Davidwache.
