COURTHOUSE

Hassfurt, Germany 2013-2018

The design of the municipal court of Hassfurt is a compact and isolated volume that, in addition to being integrated into the open urban layout that dominates the northern part of the city, serves as a landmark that marks the entrance to the historic quarter of Hassfurt.
The ground floor is dominated by three independent cubes that house different uses: courtrooms, auxiliary areas and vertical communication cores, respectively. In the free space generated by the position of the cubes extends the area of the vestibule, an open space 13 metres high, presided over by a constant overhead light. Thanks to the installation of a large glass cover over this space, it is possible to have proper ventilation and a sustainable operation of the building. On top of the cubes, which are wrapped with a continuous perforated cladding around their perimeter, are supported the two upper floors. On them the rest of the program is organized, with the offices arranged around the covered atrium entrance.
