    The Venlo City Hall is not only unique for it being the first public Cradle to Cradle building on this scale in the Netherlands, it is also unique that it filters the surrounding air from pollutants with its green façade while using very little energy in general by harnessing natural airflows and a well-balanced internal climate. The Cradle to Cradle philosophy was part of the whole design and materials where chosen for their sustainability in their full life-cycle. The investments in energy efficiency will be cost effective within three years.

    The office floors are divided into domains, thereby increasing the flexibility. Each domain has a diverse cluster of zones with different qualities and functions. This makes it possible for each individual to find the workplace best suited for their activities. The floors and open spaces are arranged so that each workplace receives the best possible amount of daylight. Green open spaces and stairs that promote interaction create a working environment that doesn’t end at the office floor. “Meeting others” is the heart and soul of the Venlo City Hall.
