La Habra Civic Center

La Habra, CA

City of La Habra
24,000 sq. ft.

After outgrowing their old civic center, the City of La Habra partnered with SVA Architects and DLS Builders to convert an existing business complex into a spacious and modern 21st century civic center. The facility features ample space for La Habra’s City Hall, along with all civic departments (administration, finance, community development, public works, and engineering), as well as a U.S. Post Office, new police department evidence storage, and a multi-use training/workshop space. A key design feature of this project is the transformation of an exterior courtyard into an enclosed, atrium-style lobby that fills the entrance with natural light and provides a central hub for all civic business.
