Architects De Twee Snoeken unveil the new Town Hall in 's-Hertogenbosch. 

Within the main historical town of Vught, central Netherlands, the Vughtse tower, the Petrus Church and the town hall make up three important landmarks. Due to the rising roofline, the spaces for the technical installations are integrated into the total structure. The ground floor looks transparent, which gives rise to the feeling that the “tower” is floating. The elliptical structure is girdled by a large natural lake symbolising the name of Vught, which means moisture. The council of Vught opted to accommodate all municipal functions, excluding the council chamber, in the new building. The public area is situated on the ground floor and the first to fourth floors inclusive, are the offices. The fifth floor is reserved for the executive.
