Aurora Municipal Center
Aurora's City government was quickly outgrowing its outdated facility, and desperately needed to consolidate multiple satellite operations under one roof. Throughout the design process the Aurora City Council and City staff asked for a building that would reflect the rich traditions of the City and give architectural form to the dignity of their government.
The Municipal Center's floor plan is designed for ease of use by visitors and employees, with similar services adjacent to each other, and the most often visited departments on the lower two floors, easily accessible from the two-story lobby. The lobby, plaza, and lawn can be used simultaneously for public events, and serve as a unifying element for existing and future buildings on the site.
