New Courthouse in Thun.
New Courthouse in Thun.

This proposal comprises the surrounding space of the new courthouse in Thun, located in a 6.000m2 urban plot area, located next to the Arne river, requalified for urban use.

The designed urban areas include a walkway along the front facade, access to underground car parking in the East facade, a square in connection with the new residential neighbourhood, and a garden area on the posterior facade. The garden constitutes a separation band between the courthouse and the office building, acting as an integration space with crossing walkways and public leisure areas.
