De Architekten Cie. and Lada Hršak from HL architecture won the competition for the Public Service Hall in Georgia.
The competition was held by The Ministry of Justice of Georgia and supports the countrywide reform for renewal of public services. Eight PSH's are (almost) realised and eight new ones are about to come.
The project proposes an elevated square being the roof of the building. The square connects the public space with the roof auditorium which becomes the new civic place for the city.
Municipal services housed under the coffered ceiling are arranged in a free plan. This space where 250 services can be obtained, is composed of five sectors - islands with the proposed two minute waiting time.
