function court building
contributed by Emiel_Lamers

What began as a limited commission to renovate the crumbling and dated façades of a 1970s court office tower, ended in the realization of two new court rooms designed by József Koller. At the same time, he was asked to come up with a solution for the almost 2000-square-metre terrace in front of the office tower. Cracks in its stone floor were allowing water to leak into the underlying car park and storage spaces. Koller came up with the idea of building new court rooms across from the offices, on the site of the leaky terrace. He designed four parallel blocks of approximately 5 by 35 metres, at right angles to the office tower, and entirely faced with beige sandstone from quarries on Croatia's Istrian peninsula. Because the office building overlooks the new court rooms, Koller paid special attention to the roof elevation. The roofing felt was topped by a five-centimetre-thick layer of concrete in which stone tiles from the original terrace were laid vertically in an open structure.
