Erik van Egeraat's town hall, whose premises also include the offices of a housing corporation and an information centre, stands where the old town fortifications used to be. Wearing a green cap of sedum grass, the building follows the wayward lines of the old city walls, its free forms held in place by a steel frame. The town hall portion can be identified by its white marble facade and glass council chamber suspended above the customer service windows. The office portion has deep vertical wooden slats hung in front of the glazing and gets additional daylight by way of a patio. The Brabant Historical Information Centre has an underground archives department and a public reading room and information service in the round corner. Large revolving doors connect the office portion to the capacious town hall lobby, which can be accessed from two sides.
