The visually interesting Town Hall of St. Michielsgestel in the Netherlands is designed by the architects Alberts & Van Huut, who are well-known for their NMB-bank projects in the south-east Amsterdam and the Gas Union office in Groningue.
Alberts & Van Huut design buildings using the principles of organic construction, and they believe that it is important to contribute to a stimulating environment, that promotes maximum inspiration and encourages people to think creatively. Thus, they seek to design visually interesting buildings using a range of different materials – like brick, wood and tiles – and a wide range of different colors.
By the year of 2007 the new office for the Town Hall St. Michielsgestel was completed using FSC-certified wood several places. For instance, the cladding of the town hall building is made in the light brown Louro Gamela species.
The exterior window frames are constructed in the red-brown Sapupira species, while the Tatajuba species is chosen for the interior window frames.
