This modern two-story courthouse in Chico, California had two design goals: reflect the unique culture of Chico and deliver highly functional and accessible space for the public and the permanent staff.
The first floor houses the high volume court, and support area such as public counters, jury assembly rooms, a self-help center, and family services.
Accessibility, transparency and security are supported throughout the space by architecture and technology. Flexibility and growth are also planned into the design and furnishing selections.
