Palm Beach County Tax Collector's Office
Based on our extensive experience in programming and design of similar government projects, Song + Associates was hired to design the new 34,000 GSF facility to replace the existing Lake Worth and Lantana locations while including the Department of Motor Vehicles. Song + Associates designed a front facade with new 20’ high storefront glass windows to allow natural light to filter into the interior spaces, by pro-actively planning on utilizing the zoning requirements of the pre-existing two story building.
During the programming phase of the project, Song + Associates mission was to improve former work space layouts, separate public service areas from private meeting spaces, and provide logical circulation patterns to create a highly efficient environment for both visitors and employees. Song + Associates also designed a system furniture lay-out based on interviews conducted throughout the design process. The functional requirements shaped the sizes and space relationships that defined the final floor plan. Although this project was not required to be LEED certified the building was designed to meet the majority of the US Green Building Council’s requirements.
