Bedford Municipal Complex

The Bedford Municipal Complex includes a justice center, city hall and fire department. The design concept reflects the architectural tradition of the City of Bedford. To reduce the perceived mass of the buildings, while maximizing the design’s economy, the major public spaces received a higher level of material detail. Sloped roofs are connected by a secondary building fabric of flat roofs. The material palate is restrained, with an understated civic presence and consists of two brick pattern coursing, standing seam metal roof, architectural precast concrete and individual glass window placements in the brick masses.
