Munich Judicial Center

The new Judicial Centre combines all functions of the Munich District Courts in one complex. The program includes court-rooms, offices and other administrative infrastructure as well as an employee training centre.
The proposed design seeks to create an appearance appropriate to the buildings function. Its distinct clarity sets it apart from its heterogeneous neighbours. A setback from the building line creates a suitable entrance situation for a Judicial Centre, underlining the buildings particular status.
The District Courts and their common infrastructure form the main buildings volume. The employee training centre is independently located in a second building aligned with the existing buildings. The space framed by both buildings becomes an attractive outdoor area.
The building-type of a multi-storey courtyard building is particularly suited for this inner-city location with its high volume of traffic.
