Bainbridge Island City Hall

Miller/Hull Partnership - Bainbridge Island, WA


In addition to being the central gathering place for government activity, the City Hall Public Meeting Room also functions as a location for community gatherings.

Ease of use and fluid system integration were essential and the video system was designed to provide simplicity of use by persons making presentations to the council.

The system features an auto-mixing system, allowing for simple unattended operation.

Each member of the council was provided with a small speaker and volume control at each position on the dais. The "mix-minus" system allows members to hear themselves at a reduced volume, but provides progressively louder reproduction, based on the physical position of the member in relation to one another.

Infrastructure to perform a Broadcast of the council meetings was designed into the system, to allow the City to implement this feature at a later date.
