31M City Hall/Civic Center Project Tops Out In Shoreline

Daily Journal of Commerce, 01/09/2009

Designed to reflect the town’s history and values and invite an open relationship between the government and people, Shoreline City Hall is the first step toward a vibrant town center that embraces sustainability, diversity and community.

The transparent lobby offers views of a terraced amphitheatre and outdoor green civic plaza, a flexible venue for community events, a farmer’s market and public performances. Glass doors open onto the plaza, allowing public gatherings to spill outside.

Certified LEED Gold, the design incorporates sustainable strategies such as a green roof over council chambers, sensor-controlled faucets that make their own power, daylight and occupancy sensors to turn off lights, and recycled or low-VOC materials.
