Courtyard City Hall

Atelier Starzak Strebicki has recently completed Courtyard City Hall, a public space in Poznań, Poland.

From the architect: Green oasis, street café, community centre, public square. These are the new incarnations of the Courtyard City Hall which was transformed from a car park into a meeting place for residents. The Courtyard located in the Old Town received a second life: it became an open, multifunctional public space.

Courtyard City Hall 1 The square has been furnished with a family of objects referring to different needs of groups of users. With a round big bench around the existing flower-bed and mobile seats that can be formed into amphitheatrical arrangement together with a podium. These elements may be used for seating, lying or cascade sitting referring to the scheme of auditorium in theatre.

Courtyard City Hall 2 All objects were put amongst flora, trees planted in flowerpots and high grass that give intimacy and cosiness to the urban interior.
