The municipality of Oost-Gelre set the architects of Studio Groen+Schild two tasks; to make it possible for all officials to work in one location and to ensure that the three existing building components link seamlessly with each other. An extension of glass and steel at one of the building components delivered additional space for the offices and met the first of the criteria. A new curved mezzanine with cascade stairway creates a spatial and visual connection between the three components. These two architectural additions literally ensure that all officials are brought together. The closed offices have been converted into a completely new, healthy working environment for the more than 160 employees. The building is airy, pleasant and open and optimally supports the employees in their daily tasks.
