Arezzo Law Court

Near the Medici’s Fortress, inside an historical park, the new building houses the main courtrooms and the Hall of Justice President headquarter and is linked to a neoclassical building, once a large hospital, to be restored and used for offices and archives. The design of the New Wing, symbolises its environment: the rich vegetation of the park and the city’s medieval structure, which was protected by a belt of conch walls on one side and, on the other, open to the squares, gardens and the territory.

Also the New Wing is enclosed on the North side by a coved wall of flamed black granite slabs dark-grey tone. To the South, an undulating transparent sunscreen façade of stainless steel is shaped according to a geometrically warped geometry which is characteristics of the skin of many living creatures, including leaves. Those complex curvilinear forms can be built using only rectilinear elements.

Thus, a silver bioclimatic foliage protects the interior spaces by a luminous shadow and blends with the park without clashing with the neoclassical nearby architectural elements. In the interior spaces, the astonishing reflection of the mirror-like polished black granite floor is contrasting with the greenish glazed envelop and the horizontal acoustic grey panel separated by narrow maple fascias.
