Yolo County Superior Court

"Superior Court of California, County of Yolo's design is expressive of open and accessible government while representing the dignity and strength of the courts." Fentress Architects with interiors by Dreyfuss & Blackford counted on One Workplace to deliver furnishings to meet the challenge.

Interior curved surfaces mirror the curved exterior façade, and introduce the comfort and warmth of natural veneers. To balance transparency and security, separate circulation paths are provided for staff, the public, and in-custody defendants.
The curved façade facing Main Street and the transparent glass lobby welcome visitors and symbolize open and accessible government.
The design approach focuses on the importance of activities within the courthouse, addressing adequate spaces that will be adaptable to future changes in judicial practice.
Furniture and finishes remain similar in public and staff areas to underscore equity across all users of the space.
