PROJECT TYPE
Civic

Part of a mixed-use, master-planned community, the Chino Hills Government Center was designed to be the heart of the city. The center consists of a 56,000-square-foot city hall, a 28,000-square-foot library, a 30,000-square-foot sheriff's facility, and a 15,000-square-foot fire department. A central plaza serves as a civic gathering place for the community. The project grounds itself in the local topography. Each building is anchored by extra-thick accent walls clad in natural stone. The rough-hewn material relates to the rugged hills that form a backdrop to the site. Four columns support a massive "floating" roof; a breezeway connects the city hall and library entries. The breezeway shades lobbies and frames views to the freestanding fire station on the opposite side of the plaza. For the exterior, designers chose colors typical of southwest arid regions: beige and tan, ochre and sienna.

Sustainable features include daylit interiors, as well as water conservation and stormwater management strategies. The design team also incorporated a native, drought-tolerant landscape. The new government center campus includes four buildings, a City Hall (Council Chambers, offices of the City Manager, City Clerk, Building Department, Community Services, Community Development, Data Center and Support Departments), Fire Administration Headquarters, Sheriff Facility, and County Library. The Sheriff's Facility was designed to essential facility standards.
