The original aluminium window frames will be removed and replaced by new structural glazing windows producing together with the glass tile facade a very smooth, dark and shiny skin. The heads of the office building will be extended and transformed into more flexible landscape offices. These spaces will be opened with big panorama windows giving the employees the possibility to enjoy views over the Dutch polder landscape. The entrance of the town hall will be extended as well to realize a more convenient and inviting public foyer.
