Orange County Justice Expansion

Orange County | Hillsborough, North Carolina

The Orange County Justice Expansion is located in the heart of historic Hillsborough, and as a result, had to be sensitively designed to fit into the downtown context.

The exterior of the facility was carefully crafted to respond to the nearby historic courthouse on the street side, while opening up on the south side to address the adjacent Eno River Park. The program includes new space for the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, a consolidated Clerk of Superior Court and two new District Courtrooms with a secure corridor from existing judicial offices. The project exhibits many ‘green’ features including a geothermal mechanical system, high-efficiency lighting and low-flow plumbing fixtures.
