Burienís new City Hall and library was designed with masonry, natural stone, glass and metal.

Burien Library and City Hall is at the heart of the cityís six-parcel Town Square development. The 58,000-square-foot building, designed with masonry, natural stone, glass and metal, has a regional library for the King County Library System on the lower two floors and a city hall for Burien on the upper floor.

The exterior is designed to expose the programs and internal activities to passersby and to complement activities in the adjacent 1-acre park. The project opened in fall of 2009 and is on target to achieve silver LEED certification.
