The new city hall Westland in Naaldwijk, The Netherlands consists of two transparant buildings and is located in the middle of the city centre. The very transparant façade gives the feeling that the municipal council is literally present on the square.
Open feel and transparency
To create an effect of transparancy, Vorsselmans thought of a unique façade construction in which the steel construction is leading. For the transparant building on the Verdilaan, Vorsselmans combines the atrium façade with a steel construction. The steel construction has two functions: to support the roof and to guarantee the stiffness of the façade. The rear façade alternates glass with sandwich panels. The sandwich panels and the glass are semi-structurally wedged on a curtain wall construction. This creates a smooth appearance that is not interrupted by horizontal or vertical clamp frames.
