San Diego New Central Courthouse

Сообщение InDesign » Чт ноя 16, 2017 11:50 am

The recently opened San Diego Central Courthouse consolidates multiple county courts into a single building. The 25-story tower, located on a former brownfield, is designed to serve as a catalyst for an emerging government district. On its eastern elevation, a rooftop canopy with a soffit of aluminum panels shades the building. At its base, a 48-foot atrium lined with windows serves as the courthouse’s main entry hall.

San Diego New Central Courthouse


The San Diego Central Courthouse consolidates San Diego County’s criminal trial, family, and civil courts into a 22-story tower in the city’s downtown. In the spirit of civic buildings with a strong but accommodating presence, SOM's design updates this formal repertoire with a language of robust, subtractive massing that encloses a safe and welcoming interior.

The limestone-faced, precast concrete tower and podium, along with a new public plaza, rises from a former brownfield at the intersection of Union and C Streets, and is designed to serve as a catalyst for an emerging government district. The full-block footprint of the courthouse supports the transformation of an adjacent lot into a new public park. Together, the courthouse and park establish a pedestrian landscape with generous sidewalks, planter boxes, and trees.

This project was completed in spring 2017.
