Abstract:

When the City of Newport Beach, California, needed a city hall more central in its location, designers took the opportunity to construct more than just an administrative building, creating an inviting civic space that includes a community room, city council chambers, family-friendly parkland, and an expansion to a branch of the city's library—all on a site that offers stunning views of the Pacific Ocean.
