Citizens Hall (Left: looking back toward entrance on northeast)

This 50 meter high atrium is in the center of the 12 story complex. Municipal offices are grouped around the perimeter. The glass roof of the atrium is supported by laminated timber trusses with sunscreens and lights. Aerial bridges span the atrium and painted white steel is used for stair and elevator structures.


Looking west

The huge atrium continues inside through much of the length of the building. Open bridges cross the atrium at each floor level.
