A Town Hall is a declaration – a sign of self-government’s approach to citizens, to the town, to the economy.
Inspired by the current state, we propose a new town hall at the head of the elongated K. V. Raise square. The building, which is not adjacent to the surrounding buildings, which is offset from it, a building that looks lofty on all sides and closes each of the individual public spaces.
The town hall has three floors. On the ground floor are located two of the three halls, a registry office and an information center. On the other two floors are located the offices of the town hall. The city management is located on the first floor.
The ground floor spaces can be interconnected in various ways, according to the individual needs of every event, including the possibility of connecting the large hall with the small square next to the town hall. The upper floors are connected by an atrium.
The chosen scheme is neatly organized. It does not separate individual workplaces and promotes the impression of teamwork. At the same time, it offers appropriate spaces for citizens who are waiting, filling documents, preparing for meetings in the atrium area.
The aesthetics of the town hall are formed by a thin line between civically comprehensible friendliness and a dignified representation of the town’s power.
