The Raadhuis in Hilversum is Dudok’s masterpiece. Famous W.M. Dudok design from 1923-1924 ; building didn’t start until 1927.

This striking, asymmetric building is formed from simple planes punctuated with rhythmic openings. The architecture is dominated by the high clock tower in the southwest corner and beautifully set against a large expanse of water on the west (towards city centre) side.
