City of Sterling, Illinois, City Hall and Police Department Renovation

Sterling, Illinois

The city of Sterling's 80-year-old Coliseum Building was renovated to house the city hall and police department. The updated design accommodates city administrative functions and significantly renovates the police department spaces already located on the lower level. The project transforms the historic auditorium space into contemporary offices and event areas. The auditorium’s seating spaces were transformed into council chambers and offices exercising an efficient use of the wood floor, which was in excellent shape. The stage was removed to provide adjacent space for work and storage functions.
