Venlo City Hall

  • About the project

    The demographic development for the province of Limburg foresees a contraction scenario for the next decennia. The degree of shrinkage varies by region, but also the Venlo region will shrink if no new impulses arise. The ambitions of Venlo are not compatible with the foreseeable decrease. Venlo therefore opts for growth and fits a range of different strategies aimed at the planned contraction to bend it into a structural growth. The commitment to a leadership position in implementing Cradle to Cradle is seen as an important instrument to achieve the desired growth in combination with a clear and positive profile in order to entice businesses to invest in Venlo. The municipality of Venlo considers Cradle to Cradle as an innovative economic design principle, with the highest possible sustainability as a result.

    Venlo has built a new City Hall as a sign of its excellent service to residents and businesses. A pleasant and healthy workplace for employees of the municipality of Venlo stands central; a building that will create a comfortable and healthy working environment combined with innovative sustainability. An icon at the river Meuse, that proudly refers to the agro-logistics tradition of the city Venlo; placed in the centre of attention for Cradle to Cradle-design. A building that exudes what the municipal organisation wants to be: open, transparent and accessible. The design of the new Venlo City Hall is inspired by the Cradle to Cradle-principles.
