The search for renewed order, an optimum and rigorous logistical organization, is an important feature in BSa's method of working and explains why the architects sometimes refer to their plans as 'production landscapes'. Accordingly, the renovations of various houses can be conceived as internal reorganizations in which the square metres, the domains of the occupants, sight lines and circulation routes are rearranged and where necessary repaired. Although the remodelling of Heerenveen Town Hall is on a different scale, the same means were used in the spatial restructuring of this organization. The imperforate street level has been replaced by a multi-coloured glass fa├žade behind which the civil servants will now be visible and available to the public. The public interface was moved from the centre of the building to the front. By placing the meeting rooms on the ground floor there is also more contact between the officials and urban life (text by Kirsten Hannema).
