A new town hall proposal for the town of Sola. Generated from a crucifix truss structural system, each programs are places within spatial pockets opportunistically. In order to retain flexibility of each floor plates, administration offices are free from the orthodox office cells.
The new Rådhus serves as an open and accessible meeting grounds for the citizens of Sola.By distributing the required program into two new volumes we activate a credible pedestrian Rådhusgata to the east. The resulting complex allows for flexible, interactive spaces, which can evolve and be executed over time.
The flexible internal arrangement of the different departments is achieved through a series of cascading and spiraling public plazas and stairs that puncture through each floor. Like the Spanish Steps in Rome, the spiraling stairs and plazas separate and connect the different departments, while also stimulating natural stack effect ventilation.
