Aalto completed the administrative complex with a white-rendered, three-storey office building. He wanted to create an end point for the axis that started from the church and crossed through the Citizens’ Square – “a calm background building,” as Aalto is known to have described it. The architecturally most significant part of the building is the district court, which today is used as a meeting facility. Over the years, the office building has been home to the inland revenue service and the police.
