Jo Coenen's master plan for the Smalle Haven area in Eindhoven included several Municipal Offices. The building exterior matches the diversity of the plan and connects its various components both visually and structurally. The heart of the building is a 'city room': a partly roofed outdoor space that serves as the entrance vestibule. An arcade connects all of the adjacent buildings. The building exterior, with its vertical bond brick fašade, is simple and robust. The entrance, city garden and city room have transparent fašades. Vertical windows - floor to ceiling in the cockpits to the back - emphasize the verticality and give the fašades rhythm. The windows are pushed back and fit with stainless steel frames that add light and transparency to the fašades. Though the building does not look particularly uniform from the outside, it does on the inside.
