State College Municipal Building
State College, PA
Project Type: New Construction
Building Area: 75,000 square feet
Designed to function as a community hub, the building provides a strong backdrop to the public plaza along South Allen Street. A two story lobby serves as exhibit space for local artists and connects visitors to the most frequently accessed functions in the building. A community space, public conference rooms and currently, the New Leaf Initiative are core public spaces that make the building a real community asset. The building also supports the police, finance, public works departments, information services and borough administration. The council chamber resides prominently above the main entrance with a strong visual connection back to the plaza below.
