The new Bonita Springs City Hall is an adaptive re-use of an existing 8,000 s.f. bank building into a new 13,000 s.f. government building. Although the building enjoys an excellent location on Bonita Beach Road, the entrance is on the side opposite the public’s initial orientation onto the site. The challenge was to create an appealing, dignified appearance from all vantage points as well as throughout the interior of the building.
The building includes all City offices plus City Council chambers capable of multi-media presentations and meetings for gatherings of up to 115 people.
The program called for a comfortable waiting room for 50 patients, 10 spacious exam rooms with large windows, two centrally located open nurses stations, and a stress lab complete with treadmills, nuclear camera, hot lab and Echo rooms.
Soothing comfort and a friendly and accessible interaction between patient and staff dictated the openness of the layout and the warm hues selected for the décor.
