The Glenwood Springs City Hall achieves several goals outlined by the city.  With a strong civic presence that is respectful of the historic downtown and a plaza that engages the surrounding structures, the building also allows 24/7 access for the Police Department and is flexible for expansion.  The building is organized around a two-story glass gallery that creates a light-filled, dynamic space that invites the community inside, and is used for public/private functions without interfering with building security.
