Sulphur Springs City Hall
Sulphur Springs, Texas
In 2006, Architexas completed a rehabilitation study of the historic Old Sulphur Springs Post Office. The post office was previously converted to the local library but had been vacant for several years and was in danger of sale or demolition. The purpose of the report was to describe the general condition of the building with recommendations for rehabilitation and modifications necessary to allow the City of Sulphur Springs to adapt and utilize the building for municipal operations without compromising the integrity of the historical building fabric.
In 2011, Architexas completed a Master Planning and Programming Services which included designs for future expansions that utilize the entire site in a manner that complements the downtown redevelopment vision. The initial phase of the three phase approach includes a sympathetic addition and outdoor plaza that is connected to the back side of the building that will house the fire stair, elevator, and ADA compliant restrooms which allows for the interior of the historic structure to be maximized for city hall and municipal courtroom functions. Construction of phase one commenced in summer 2013 and was completed by fall of 2014. The second and third phase expansions will include additional City office space based on the long range space needs analysis.
