This project transformed an old, outdated telecommunications building into a state-of-the-art civic structure for the City of Bellevue, Washington. All city departments are now housed under one roof, including the technically specialized functions of the police department and the city’s emergency response infrastructure. The environmental graphics artfully interweaves with the open space of the architecture to create elegant public spaces that welcome the citizens to participate in their local government. The colored signage and graphics compliment the building’s warm palette and the bold “Bellevue” along the main stairwell becomes a civic icon for the city.
