Rutland Courthouse Competition for Rutland, VT

This was a submission for the new Rutland District & Family Courthouse competition.

The design parallels the geometric simplicity of nineteenth century Vermont courthouses but, with a contemporary twist.

As a civic building, the design had to balance a programmatic duality of tight security and public circulation. Native Vermont materials like slate, marble, maple woodwork and brick were used to connect the front facade to its immediate context.
