Independence Civic Center

Myhre Group Architects was responsible for the architectural design and interior design of this civic building located just south of historic downtown Independence, Oregon. The Independence Civic Center is designed to exude a sense of permanence and to reflect today’s sustainable technology. With two full floors and partial daylight basement, the building contains the Independence Police Department, City Administration offices, a City Council chamber, and a number of community development and building department offices; all are arranged around a naturally lit, multi-story lobby. The exterior is clad in brick, precast concrete, decorative concrete masonry units, metal panels, and storefront glazing, while a rooftop 250 KW photovoltaic solar array contributes to a LEED Silver equivalency.
