Staircase landscape connects and provides meeting place
In the welcoming heart of the building, a staircase landscape will rise up and feature views of the IJssel valley at the front and a magnificent view over Rhederoord country estate on the third floor. The bright and airy atrium will offer a hospitable welcome, feature information about upcoming developments in the municipality and provide space for interaction, individual work, presentations or coffee drinking. The connection between the landscape and history makes the identity of the Municipality of Rheden visible and tangible: an inviting setting that encourages interaction between staff, residents and visitors.
Public-facing facilities, such as helpdesks, interview rooms and the wedding hall and council chamber are located around the atrium, with semi-public areas, such as the diner/work café and meeting area, behind it. The back office is located further away from the centre. In it, municipality staff will work in a flexible environment designed for activity-based working (Activiteit Gerelateerd Werken).
