Oakland County Government Center

YAMASAKI was commissioned to design a complete Master Plan for the Oakland County Government Campus and continues to maintain a central role in the expression and fulfillment of this master plan.

Phase I included a state-of-the-art, 74,000 square foot technical center which computer services are critical to the daily operation of a variety of govern-mental agencies. YAMASAKI’s design solution effectively addresses security, accessibility, efficient work flow patterns, storage and training needs. The face of the facility expresses the functions within while it maintains a contextual relationship with the neighboring structures and site. Bordered by woodlands, the offices are oriented to provide clear sight lines to tranquil views.

Phases II & III included the integration of a new building and renovations to the 275,000 square foot Courthouse, augmenting its functions. 64,000 square feet of the new facility houses three libraries: Law, Reference and Collections for the Blind and Physically Handicapped. 4,000 square feet of office space was designed to include offices for the County Prosecutor and supporting staff.

YAMASAKI’s architectural solutions called for the use of similar materials, reflecting the existing character and palette of adjacent structures to enhance rather than compete with the total complex. Particular attention was paid to accessibility that went beyond mere ADA compliance given the needs of intended user groups.
