Somerton City Hall Dedication Ceremony

On June 1st, 2017, the Somerton City Hall Dedication Ceremony occurred. LEA Architects, LLC has incorporated the Somerton community’s cultural values and aspects into their modernistic design. This 14,600 sq ft building will provide a great facility for the community, as well as provide a wonderful large classroom space for students attending Arizona Western College.

LEA Architects, LLC (LEA) designed the New Somerton City Hall to accommodate the day-to-day administration of the City’s services and programs, and reflect the current and future aspirations of the City. The Architecture of the New Somerton City Hall along with two other major City Buildings (Somerton Public Library and the Somerton Public Safety Building) designed by the same Architect drew inspiration from the agricultural context and culture of this surrounding community using exposed regional masonry as a critical component of the design. Natural building materials, including extensive use of ground-face concrete masonry for exterior and interior walls in combination with exposed structural steel, concrete, glass, and standing seam metal wall panels, define the building surface and exude a sense of sustainability and presence.
