The vision for the Cheongju City Hall is to create a landmark representing integrated governance, with minimal distance between the government and its citizens. As a response to this, the administrative spaces are consolidated under one roof to ensure smooth operation and open communication between departments.
Following the belief that good governance begins with good working environments, the New City Hall provides grade A working facilities promoting collaboration, innovation, efficiency, and physical and mental wellbeing.
The building’s roof and façade are formed by gently folded curves, referencing the shape of traditional Korean roofs. A combination of translucent and opaque panels gives the structure scale and rhythm.
Through its open and inclusive design, the Cheongju New City Hall will integrate seamlessly with the urban context and promote ownership for the citizens and visitors of Cheongju. While providing a platform for effective governmental administration, the Cheongju New City Hall will serve as a symbol of integration and accommodate for collaboration and social interaction.
The Cheongju New City Hall is due for completion in 2025.
