Civic & cultural architecture
Elevating everyday public spaces for thriving communities
Foundations for a brighter future
Great civic architecture requires great responsibility as stewards of taxpayer dollars – but this doesn’t mean civic structures are limited to the bare bones of design. Government projects present a wealth of opportunity, beginning with employee and community wellness. Exceptional civic spaces can empower citizens, support local needs, and ignite city-wide pride. JLG’s Civic studio simplifies your decision-making journey to achieve goals that elevate the everyday. We gather community and staff input, navigate design concepts and capital choices, explore sustainable design to reduce operational costs, and facilitate fundraising.
Thriving cities are ever evolving, requiring civic structures to expand and grow with the community. We work with cities and government bodies to create flexible design that consolidates departments, converts existing spaces, preserves historic character, and fuses fragmented systems. Civic design also has the power to engage and educate – removing barriers and inviting community inside to explore the processes and services that power our cities 365 days a year.
