The New City Hall in Deventer

New City Hall in Deventer

The new city hall in Deventer unites the old historical city hall with a new city office. The City Hall’s design seamlessly blends in with Deventer’s typical urban tradition of gardens and squares that are interconnected via alleys, pathways and gates.

The building is organized around two newly designed gardens: the one that encloses the old mayor’s house and a covered inner yard in which visitors and employees can meet one another. The facades consist of a grid of different sized, oak wood frames that are filled with aluminum grills with fingerprints from Deventer citizens; an artwork by Loes ten Anscher. The artwork showcases the building’s public value and embeds it in the city.
