Antequera Judicial Seat
This courthouse is located on the outskirts of the town of Antequera, within a recently built and growing residential area. Considering there were few initial attractions, the dialogue between the site and the architecture was very limited; the only interesting factor being the dimension and proportions. The forced autonomy of the construction led Laguilllo and Schönegger to consider a contained and compact architecture, resulting in a longitudinal building, based on a public platform from which a prism-shaped tower emerges. Without renouncing to a significant capacity, the objective has been to design a building that adequately meets the functional needs of visitors and workers, and is appropriately scaled to its surroundings. A dense structure that boasts a very human interior, the building promotes solid and robust values as well as transparency and clarity, all of them fundamental factors of justice.
