Murrieta City Hall

2010 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Municipal Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

The Murrieta City Hall, a collaboration of the practical function of a Tilt-Up form with the established design style of craftsman architecture, was conceived out of the necessity to deliver a cost-effective facility with a design style complementary to the town center.

Craftsman details are integrated into the Tilt-Up structure at the building’s entrances, balconies, patios and iconic clock tower. The overall design intent is to illustrate that the use of an established architectural language can be successfully integrated with a Tilt-Up structure, forwarding the boundaries of each style into a modern building system. Focus was spent on breaking the building massiveness down into human scales.

As one approaches the two-story city office building, the full size of the structure is concealed by several layers; the first of which is a pedestrian trellis that creates a pleasant shade structure adjacent to the walkway. The second layer is a landscape buffer to the one-story Tilt-Up wall, forming a backdrop to the landscape. The second story wall steps up 20 feet beyond the first to complete the transition.

About the TCA

Founded in 1986, the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) strives to improve the quality and acceptance of site-cast Tilt-Up construction, a method in which concrete wall panels are cast on-site and tilted into place. Tilt-Up construction is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, combining the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment. At least 10,000 buildings, enclosing more than 650 million square feet, are constructed each year using this construction method.
