Assignment: Competition 2007 2nd Prize

The competition brief calls for the extension of both an existing juridical court centre and a prison from the 1960s.
The two juxtaposed existing buildings are complemented by two new buildings which dock to their corresponding functions. The new structures are located on top of an ancillary plinth which houses assembly halls, kitchen and workshops.

The ensemble is also integrated with the descending topography.

It creates a generous courtyard as well as a new urban plaza which marks the new and main entrance of the compound.
