Silo created a design based on photos by Erwin Olaf. By making the portraits in the same material as the wallcovering, the council chamber maintains a subdued appearance. The PET Felt wallcovering contributes to the optimal acoustics and is highly sustainable.

The result is a sustainable, energy-neutral, and comfortable municipal offices building. Although there are no official rules in the Netherlands for installing official portraits in government buildings, it is considered good practice.
