Court House in Osuna
Client: Junta de Andalucia
Location: Osuna, Sevilla, Spain
Status: 1st Prize Competition. Stage 4 completed.
In partnership with OPR and RoomZ
We were commissioned by the Andalusian government to sensitively restore and convert a listed
Mansion into a Court.
The Court House has been integrated within a collection of buildings including the 16th-18th Century
Cepeda’s Mansion, the neoclassic ancillary development at the back and the 20th century residential
houses next to the Mansion.
The primary challenge of this project was on how to stitch all of the buildings together into a
coherent whole. Particularly as it was essential to integrate all the elements of the new and existing
buildings while maintaining a clear distinction between the historic fabric and the new additions.
Meeting the challenging functional demands of the Court Service, with complex internal
reorganisation, at the same time as creating a Court House that was notable for the comfort of its
spaces, the light and environmental quality of the different areas and a high-quality workplace have
been essential requirements observed throughout the development of this project.
