Cedar Hill Government Center

The multi-functional civic building is a mark of the city’s pioneering spirit, bringing together three community functions for the first time: the City Hall, Independent School District administrative offices, and Police Department. Linking Cedar Hill’s rugged frontier past with its current enterprising image, the building uses local materials, regional symbols, and the character of the surrounding landscape in innovative, unusual ways. Cedar trees cleared from the site were milled and used as interior finishes for the Cedar Hill Room, and locally sourced Texas limestone and structural clay tile further tie the building to its community. A central vaulted atrium provides passage through the complex; bridges, stairs and lookout platforms provide opportunities for chance encounters among acquaintances.
