location Burgos
function court building
contributed by noagon

This building, completed at the end of the 19th century in a neo-classical style, is still in use today, as the seat of the Supreme Courts of the Region of Castilla and León, the Public Prosecutor?s Office and the District High Court. In recent years it had become considerably run down. The renovation proposal readdressed the floor layout. In addition to using the attic floor and creating a new basement, it proposed converting the semi-basement into a ground floor with access to the building at this level. A gently sloping ramp connects the former semi-basement to street level, also facilitating accessibility to the building, previously conditioned by the steps leading up to the entrance. The position of the interior patios at semi-basement level made this operation easier. Where the justice system was previously 'above' the general public, it now sits 'at street level', making it closer, more accessible and showing a desire to be more democratic.
