The new Tilburg City Shop has created a central place where residents and companies can contact the municipality and a number of its social partners in an informal setting. The transformation of the old city office was carried out completely circularly.
In 2018, the municipality of Tilburg formulated high ambitions when it comes to the sustainability and circularity of its own housing. The Tilburg City Shop on the Koningsplein is one of the first circular and biobased transformed offices in the Netherlands. The building has been designed in such a way that everything possible has been reused and can also be reused in the future. All newly used materials and products are recycled or made from renewable raw materials.
The building houses part of the municipal organization and the city shop. The entire ground floor with the city shop, the work restaurant and the meeting center is freely accessible to the public.
A lot of wood has also been used in the interior. In addition, the materials used are biobased or made from recycled products.
Icon of circularity
The Stadswinkel in Tilburg is proof that thinking about circularity no longer has to be associated with tree huggers. Thinking about circularity has resulted in a new architecture that appeals to the imagination.
