    Description :

    As indicated in the description of Aalto's plans for the overall development of the centre of Alajärvi, the drawings for the town hall date from 1966–69. The council chamber is accentuated as the most important part of the building, with black granite surfaces embedded in a whitewashed facade; the remaining rooms are grouped along a central corridor. All of the municipal offices and services are gathered here except for the health centre, which has a building of its own.
