The Town Hall, built 1726-30, is a symbol of Schorndorf (population 38,000), a stand-alone structure which dominates the town’s market square. For the initial conversion stage the upper floors were renovated in line with energy efficiency and listed building requirements.

The project is the winning entry of a Victoria-Gasteiz town hall competition. The volume proposed by the competition is modified in order to obtain a better orientation of the project in a more prismatic, rectangular form. A north-south orientation allows for the buildings to be more separated, increasing the amount of sunlight that reaches the interior facades. The buildings are designed as differentiated, black and white volumes joined by small boxes that contain the vertical cores. These are also shaped as black prisms.

Egedal Town Hall and Health Centre will be the uniting centre of the new Municipality of Egedal north of Copenhagen. Egedal Town Hall and Health Centre will be one of the first buildings in the new planned urban area around Egedal Station. It will thus spearhead the development of the new district.
The Town Hall and Health Centre form part of the same entity. The Health Centre is designed as a village with courtyards and green, internal walkways connecting to the central square of the building. Thus, the Health Centre will become an active part of the Town Hall, while at the same time offering citizens the opportunity to use the area outside town hall opening hours. The roof of the Health Centre is shaped as a large roof garden with green recreational spaces.
