Concept excerpt: A suspended semitransparent sculpture is placed above the center of the lobby, filtering the dayligt through its multiple glass panes down on the floor. Some of its ends reach beyound the clock tower shaft, connecting visually the ground floor with the space above.
The central sculpture is accompanied by 3 large format paintings, placed on those walls without windows or doors.

Upon entering the lobby the visitor will first see a large vertical painting between the chamber doors, portraits of people representing the community in red and yellow hues. Recording the point in history when the village established itself as such and  city hall was build.

Placement and proportions of the art works support the architectural gesture of a welcoming cityhall.
It also reflects on a community build on precious land right adjecant to Biscayne bay and the Atlantic, the abundance of water as part of its lure and posing a threat at the same time.
