Pasco City Hall
The City of Pasco obtained the old McLoughlin Junior High School building from the local school district after it had sat vacant for ten years. The City chose to obtain ownership of the building, constructed in 1920, to preserve its historic and perceived aesthetic value for the community. Our design team was charged with blending preservation and conversion into a design that would preserve the historic west façade while establishing an image of permanence and civic authority.
The interior design of the public spaces conveys a more conservative quality and provides special attention to the city council chambers by producing a design that invites and facilitates audience participation. The completed building is 73,900 square feet.
