First price for New Cologne Justice Center

An identity-creating urban component for the justice is being created in Cologne. After winning first prize in the urban design competition for the new Cologne Justice Centre back in 2022, the design of HPP Architects also impressed the jury in the structural engineering and landscape planning implementation competition - and was awarded first prize.

The urban design in 2022 surprised with a concept without a high-rise building. The further architectural development builds on this basis and focuses on the advantages of a horizontal distribution of uses in five slightly offset building cubes. The design blends sensitively into the heterogeneous urban environment, with the adjacent landscape acting as a link between the southern urban structure and the northern inner green belt. The new justice centre, which houses the regional and district courts, the Cologne public prosecutor's office and a central courtroom wing, conveys clarity and transparency and integrates the justice system directly into public life.
