The new building looks like a large barn made of wooden structure and stone shell, a glazed corridor connects the new building with the restored monastery, where the mayor and aldermen are housed.

This project is not yet at its end. The actual restoration of the monastery must act still in progress. Although the new building is a low-energy construction, goes into the monastery itself much energy is lost due to lack of proper insulation and single glazing. There is still work to be done in the coming years.
