This complex of six buildings was constructed after a devastating earthquake, to house local government offices. The design responds to the climate, the context and the seismology of the region. The buildings are orientated at a 45 degree angle to the existing urban grid and each has a colonnaded central courtyard, adjustable solar shading and narrow, recessed windows to moderate heat gain. Sloping roofs further shade the courtyards and accommodate services. Patterned brickwork facades respect the local vernacular and a modular structural system affords maximum flexibility internally. The complex is a distinctive local landmark and at the same time sits in harmony with its context.
