Regional Modernism

A limestone envelope encloses the main body, which is a glass and brick rectangular bar. Brick respects surrounding buildings, while the shape of the limestone distinguishes the village hall.


“The building responds to the city’s desire for a landmark structure that symbolizes its revitalization and provides a greater sense of openness to government proceedings.”


Government in Action

Perpendicular to the main mass, a glass-enclosed council chambers area hovers above the ground. It provides public visibility of the government in action and defines a gateway into the civic plaza.
