North Liberty City Council Chambers

Challenge

The City of North Liberty is one of the fastest growing communities in the state of Iowa. As part of its plan to keep pace with the growth, city leaders needed a space that would serve as interim city council chambers and general meeting room while the city plans for a more permanent facility.

Solution

The interim facility features a vestibule and display area, a formal council chamber with a crescent-shaped desk that seats 13, a control room for video broadcasts and a private meeting room for council work sessions. All of these functions were incorporated into an existing office building that is immediately adjacent to the City’s administrative offices. Designers made every effort to strike a balance between the need for a formal, well-lighted space that would represent the city well, with the need to keep costs low on a facility that is temporary. The resulting space features clean lines, built-in video and audio technology, and acoustic measures for speech intelligibility.

Impact

The community and council now enjoy space for city council meetings that has adequate space in an efficient layout. The resulting space features clean lines, built-in video and auto technology and acoustic measures for speech intelligibility.
