transparent pavilion with striking wooden roof  

cepezed renders the existing complex more sustainable and adds a transparent pavilion with a striking wooden roof. In doing so, it aims for an optimal synergy between the various building parts. The park-like setting is enhanced by rendering the forecourt more green and by a careful integration of the new building parts between the pond and monumental trees.

inviting entrance  

The new extension will partly directly adjoin the existing building and accommodates the inviting public entrance with counters, consultation rooms, waiting areas, break-outs and the multifunctional council chamber.

multifunctionele raadzaal versus huiskamer  

Due to its wide usability, the multifunctionally designed council chamber with a view on the greenery outside has everything it takes to become the living room for the new municipality. In addition to council and other meetings, it is also suitable for e.g. events, concerts, lectures and wedding ceremonies.

healthy & comfortable workplaces  

The existing building will be equipped with a rich diversity of healthy, comfortable work and meeting places. In the center of the work area, an existing patio will be covered with a partly wooden and partly transparent roof. Underneath it, there will be a meeting square with flexible workplaces, coffee bar, kitchen and ample of plants.
