Gordon Leith designed the building, which is made of sandstone. The council meeting chamber is located behind the city hall’s eastern entrance. With two towers, the entry on President Brand Street is symmetrical. The east entrance has neoclassical features thanks to the pillars. Signs signifying Stadhuis and City Hall sit above the symmetrical entrance. The former city coat of arms is located above these.
