The civic centre with a public open hall over several levels will be situated at the prime site of Utrecht Central Station. At this extremely complex location, in the heart of the city, the new civic centre is not, as one would expect, placed next to the public transport terminal, a building of architect Benthem-Crouwel, but cantilevers above it.
