Sharp as a glass shard, the Leyweg City Hall sports a simplistic aesthetic that nevertheless has a sci-fi edge. Made up of various angles, the structure is a dominating sight for locals and visitors alike.

Designed by Rudy Uytenhaak Architects, the Leyweg City Hall is located in The Hague, Netherlands. Ambitious in both scale and height, it embraces its role as a signal for the environment and a catalyst for renewal of its district.

Comprised of administrative offices and a library, the inside of the Leyweg City Hall mimics its outer design. Also full of angles, its stark white interior is naturally lit through the use of many windows. A center for citizens and government, it is both welcoming and professional.
