3XN: frederiksberg courthouse, denmark

danish firm 3XN have won the architectural competition for the frederiksberg courthouse, denmark.

the new courthouse will be a natural extension of the existing neo-classical building, still maintaining its own identity through a modern and contemporary expression.  the building design is therefore composed with clear references to the architectural style of the refined neighborhood of frederiksberg.  the form of the structure is a modern interpretation of the classical saddle style roof.  

the interior of the courthouse focuses on compliance with the law reform’s requirements on security and internal segregations in the building. therefore, the building provides its employees, the defendants, witnesses and guests an open and friendly environment in which it is easy for the different user groups to navigate.  a small atrium cuts through the middle of the building; drawing light deep into the interior creating an open and airy connection across departments. 

the courthouse is expected for completion during the first half of 2012
