Municipal Hall and Hotel

Project information

The municipal hall, as well as the hotel belonging to it, are located on the site of a former quarry and were built in the front of the site so that the cliff oval, with its park, recreation and activity areas, is retained and the municipal hall, with its foyer and expansive glazed surfaces, opens up toward the city. The municipal hall responds to the cliff-like landscape by following the terraced topography. All areas accommodating the main services are located next to the central forum.
