Woluwe-Saint-Lambert/Sint-Lambrechts-Woluwe Town Hall (fully booked)
Woluwe-Saint-Lambert/Sint-Lambrechts-Woluwe’s town hall, at the heart of the municipality, is a meeting place for all local residents. Designed in a modernist style by Joseph Diongre and inaugurated in 1939, the building marries Petit Granit (Belgian blue limestone) with yellow bricks from the town of Boom, and boasts a 30-metre-high polygonal bell tower. The interior revolves around the lobby, whose hushed yet monumental space provides an ideal place for people to congregate. The entrance to the building offers an overview of both the counters and the upper floor, thanks to the passageway encircling the rotunda, with all the space being naturally lit by the openwork dome. Some of the rooms feature parquet floors and panelling, while the stairwells are adorned with marble. As one would expect in a town hall, many citizens visit the building each day to obtain documents and/or information. (Listed 13/04/1995)
