In 2014 the project of fixing the city hall quarter of Kristiansand was finished. Part of the project was keeping the old exterior walls and the tower, while building a new inside usable for the services the municipality and city offers.
This picture was taken in mid-August 2015, and shows the area of the quarter with the word brandvagt on it. The word meaning fire-guard, and the tower was used to see any smoke or problem occurring in the city centre of Kristiansand. The city centre in Kristiansand is known as Kvadraturen, referring to its square-ness.
