Entry Description: The new municipal building of Täby is an open and welcoming space. All meetings between residents and the municipality are located at the entrance level. A prominent reception also functions as information and support centre for Täby residents. The entrance hall is open to the upper floors, allowing activities of the Municipal Building to be highly visible. Set back from the roof is the penthouse which provides a separate space for internal gatherings and houses the dining space and exercise area. The façade consists of a glass system with structural glacing for maximum transparency and openness. To prevent insolation and to create character, the building has been fitted with external sun protection slats made of brass which has a very low carbon footprint in the life- cycle perspective. Täby’s new Municipal Building is designed with the highest aim for sustainability, creating a new democratic heart for the inhabitants of the city.
