DISTRICT COURT in GONESSE, FRANCE by PETITDIDIERPRIOUX

Complete restructuring

The project forms part of the reforms to the judicial map and aims to join together the activities of two courts in a single setting. Apart from having to restructure the offices, there was also a need to resolve the following dilemma: how to increase the reception areas for the public while remaining within the existing physical envelope? This was achieved by a clever interweaving of the various programmes, resulting in the concourse being enlarged by 50% and given an outdoor extension thanks to an esplanade linked to the public space. This device resolves the organisational problems at the same time as creating a new symbolic relationship between the public and the institution.
