Originally built in 1890, it features a beautiful grand ballroom, a courtroom in the round with original stained-glass windows and tiered seating, civil registration and function rooms and each area will be taken over by artists including Nasser Azam, Patrick Boyd, Leila Bartell, Ricardo Cinalli, Ariadna
