The surrounding of the building is mostly captured with green areas. The basic idea of the building came out according to this information. Half of the building is designed just under the green land which is coherent due to the topography. Generally in all over the world city halls give the impression of the power of government. Here in Adana Çukurova, the building is designed due to the human scale. The building is consisted of a four story city hall, a culture center which has the capacity of nearly 500 people, a city library, a wedding place, city information center and the ateliers.

The completion area was set close to Belediye Evleri Residantial Area. The site is between north and north settlements of the residential area. According to the design the all area between these two residential cores is designed as a City Park. The building is set at the side of the City Park in order to get an undisturbed green land. The culture center is designed below ground level because of its mass.

The city hall is separated from the culture center because of function. The City hall, culture center and the presidential areas got different entrances. The meeting area of the city hall is separated from the main body of the building. It’s cladded with wood which makes it different from the other parts of the building. The meeting area of the city hall represents the general image of the residents who live inside the border of Adana Çukurova municipality.

The inside of the building is designed due to the function and the sustainability. Adana Çukurova has a hot climate. The natural air ventilation and the natural light is used in order to reduce the energy need. The atrium place divides the building into to two which helps the building work like a courtyard. The green roof also reduces the need of energy need for cooling the inner spaces.
