The site for the courthouse is bordered by a creek on the north and west and a steep embankment on the east. This main facade of the building is oriented toward the business district, linking the facility to the district by means of a pedestrian bridge. Design of this pedestrian arcade alongside the creek was accomplished by placing the new court facilities on the upper floors. Both courtrooms were designed to meet stringent guidelines and accessibility standards.
