Project

A Calm and Considered Approach

The consolidation of courthouses is an opportunity to improve the public's access to and experience of their judicial system.

York Judicial Center

Client - State of Maine, Bureau of Real Estate Management
Biddeford, Maine

FA’s design for the York Judicial Center in Biddeford Maine derives from sustainability goals and a desire to provide a sense of calm. The new facility will be the largest judicial center in the state of Maine as it consolidates four District and Superior courthouses. Native vegetation and building materials inspired by York County’s landscape invite people in. Woodland views, courtrooms with natural light, clear wayfinding and a harmonious palette of finishes will help to mitigate the stress that the public may experience when visiting the courthouse. As an all-electric building with rooftop photovoltaics the York Judicial Center will be a highly efficient building.
