This design for Redmond City Hall reflects cutting-edge technology, outdoor lifestyles, ethnic diversity, and the Pacific Northwest environment. These qualities, as well as purposeful elements and details, are intended to make it an integral part of the community. The exterior features natural terra cotta tiles with warm golden colors. A wall of windows reinforces the notion of an exterior-to-interior connection, and implies the transparency of our governmental process. The soaring canopy entrance is supported by slender columns inspired by the Northwest’s fir tree forests. Once inside, the atrium widens out, reaching four stories high. The area is filled with natural light and provides dramatic views of the Sammamish River and Trail. Also incorporated are intimate gardens, a large central park, and other areas where concerts, social functions, art exhibits, and community gatherings can be enjoyed by Redmond citizens.
