Del Mar Civic Center
Architects: Miller Hull Partnership
Location: Del Mar, California, USA

The new Del Mar Civic Center resolves this seaside village?s longstanding need for a centralized venue where people can come together to celebrate community and exercise civic engagement. Prior to this development, Del Mar?s public activities were scattered throughout the city, often occurring in private-sector spaces. The new Civic Center consolidates primary public functions in one location, and places them at the heart of the Village.
?City Halls have evolved into being much more than places representing civic gravitas. They are a public investment in the infrastructure for the social aspects of community, where civic identity is formed through the ritual of public gatherings that are made possible by these spaces,? notes Mike Jobes, design principal for the project.

Located on a 1.5 acre property adjacent to Camino Del Mar, the town?s main thoroughfare, the Civic Center functions as a series of interconnected structures, courtyards and terraces, and open space that follows the contours of the site, while preserving spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean.

The complex includes a 3,000-square-foot Town Hall, a 9,000-square-foot City Hall...
