Designed by atelier PRO, Town Hall Bronckhorst is located in Bronckhorst, Netherlands. Two office wings project slightly outwards and have been placed next to each other on a wedge-shaped site between the Elderinkweg and a brook near the Rondweg that runs past the village of Hengelo. The wings are of different heights, and the highest has a gently sloping roof. Openings have been introduced in both inner sides at the middle of the wings: a high one for the council chamber, a low one for the public counters. Passers-by on the Rondweg see the large window of the council chamber, while vice versa the councillors have a view of the church spire of Hengelo, greenery and farms.
Bronckhorst has been given a town hall with an extremely low energy consumption. Applying the principles of passive building has made it possible to achieve an EPQ of 0.36 with this design. This means an energy consumption of only 36 % linear as compared to the norm laid down in the building regulations.
