In this Schinkelkwadrant-Zuid the city office, commercial spaces and residences are projected. The total program of the City Office covers approximately 7,000 m2 GFA (gross floor area). In the new housing, a front office, namely the entrance and a waiting area, a back office and a so-called mid office will be realized. The back office consists of an office environment for the civil service organization of the municipality of Heerlen and general facility spaces. The designed office environment is suitable for an activity related work concept. The mid-office contains a meeting and consultation center for the internal organization and for visitors and companies that can only enter the mid-office by appointment and authorization.
