Panama City City Hall
Panama City, Florida
Panama City’s desire to regenerate and transform the downtown area and its marina began with the relocation of the city hall. The purchase and renovation of the former 58,000 SF Trustmark Building allowed the city to combine most of its services under one roof. The city tasked the design team with creating a new experience for this prominent downtown city corner, as a catalyst to inspire a new standard for design in the downtown area. A new exterior skin was developed that not only enhanced the “feel” of the building from the street, but also allowed more natural light into the interior spaces greatly increasing the energy efficiency of the envelope system.
