City Hall Utrecht





64.000 m2


Gemeente Utrecht



The City Hall (Stadskantoor) Utrecht is situated directly adjacent to and above Utrecht Central Station and its bus terminal. The building houses the offices for the local authorities and there are also a number of voids and open spaces.
The project has an expressive design. The height of the building is 90 m. Because of the large spans and many voids that characterise the building, the building has been constructed with a steel structure to keep it as light as possible. The Stadskantoor is further divided in a North and a South tower, of which the latter is situated above the bus terminal.
The facade has diagonals and lattice work, that play a considerable part in the transfer of forces. Together with the cores in the North tower, they provide the stability for the entire building. Because of its location above the bus terminal, the South tower can be supported in 5 places only. 5 supercolumns have been placed, with a height of approximately 31 m.
