The extension of the Eisenstadt Justice Centre enlarges the existing court and justice department and provides space for additional functions. Two new constructions contrast with the existing structures through their strength and independence. The courthouse is a compact structure with an internal courtyard and adapts to the existing block development, while the justice building continues the L-shaped existing tract of the jailhouse. The new frontage rises as an interesting interaction of glazed and opaque surfaces. A modifiable metallic skin ensures a uniform outward appearance. A large forecourt leads to the main entrance of the court. The glass roof brings daylight to the atrium and provides an open and light atmosphere for workers and visitors. A red-coloured construction core connects the four levels of the building and provides references to the eventful external façade. The project is designed as a low-energy, sustainable building.
