The Tbilisi Public Service Hall is located in the central area of the city. The building covers 28,000 m² and is made up of seven cantilevered volumes designed as office space. Each of these sections consists of four floors located on different levels. The volumes are arranged around a "central public plaza" that is considered the core of the project and where the various front office facilities are located. The offices are also connected by internal footbridges that stretch between the various floors. The cantilevered office volumes and the central public atrium are covered by eleven huge "petals" that are formally and structurally separate from the rest of the building. The Tbilisi Public Service Hall houses the National Bank of Georgia, the Minister of Energy and the Civil and National Registry. The lighting design is based mainly on lines of light that are used in the general circulation areas, the offices where computers are common and the meeting rooms. IN60 luminaires have been installed in the corridors on all the floors and in the offices where they provide general lighting. In the corridors these luminaires emphasize the horizontal stretch and spread of space, whereas in the offices they guarantee visual comfort to those working with computer screens. In some corridors recessed Reflex Easy luminaires have been fitted to integrate the general lighting effect with distinctive zones of accent light, and in some executive offices, pendant Zyl luminaires have been installed for their decorative effect. iPlan standard lamps have also been added to allow customised light to be created on the front desks.
