Ridgecrest neighborhood tours Shoreline City Hall

Friday, April 2, 2010

The Ridgecrest Neighborhood Association recently toured the new Shoreline City Hall. Parking in the new garage, they walked along the inner courtyard to the main lobby.


The four-story dogwood mural on the side of the main building is called Limelight and the artist is Linda Beaumont.

The fountain, which was part of the landscape design, has a bench for quiet contemplation. The artist is Richard Hestekind and it is called Flowing Abundance.

Inside the lobby, the Cloud Bank, created by Leo Saul Berk, hangs from the three-story ceiling. All the art was funded under the 1% for Art Program.

Paul Garlock, OPUS Construction Superintendent, discussed the many green features of the building, such as the lights that turn on and off automatically, and the CO2 sensors that open the vents when the levels of CO2 get too high. 

Garlock points out features of the building from the rain roof over the council chambers.
