Town Hall Terschelling

Following protests from local inhabitants opposed to a new town hall, De Zwarte Hond architects opted to retain the traditionalist 1954 town hall building and to supplement it with a new wing. The large glazed pavillion makes a discreet impression, partly because of its below-grade placement against an excavated dune, and the green image conveyed by the sedum roof.
