Text description provided by the architects. After its reconstruction, the main entrance of the building was moved to the northern leading bridge. On the ground floor there is a registrar, a garage and mechanical engineering rooms. With the installment of ramps, the building is accessible for all visitors. The building mass consists of four separate cubes, and is characterized by its closed and reserved nature that is softened by the irregular arrangement of the windows and skylights.

The window openings appear in the northern and western sides of the building, and the skylights break up the roof levels of the fifth facade and provide the courtrooms with natural light. The facade tiles are sawn Kanfanar stone cover. On the low-arching roof surfaces we have used the extant stone tiles placing them dry and discontinuously. The link between the two buildings is constituted by the glassed-in bridge.

On the eastern final wall, closed stone blocks have been lined up with their surfaces covered with mine-edge stone. The Kanfanar stone cover has been used in the interior of the building as well, in this way emphasizing the courtroom entrances. Beside stone and glass, we have used oak and white plasterboard surfaces as well. The entire ceiling of the hall and the board-room is illuminated with neutral plastic lighting.
