On a hilltop site overlooking New York Harbor, the Staten Island Courthouse – which houses the New York State Supreme Civil and Criminal Courts, lower Criminal Court and related agencies – creates a distinctive expression of the judiciary for the 21st century. Four copper-clad “towers of justice” catch the morning light, providing a beacon for those arriving by ferry. The state-of-the-art facility in the civic center of St. George expresses the modern programmatic requirements of the Court while respecting the site’s historical significance. The new courthouse site is adjacent to the Staten Island Borough Hall and Public Library which employ traditional copper standing seam roofing and detailing. The client requested that the towers be clad in a noble material and copper quickly became the obvious choice.
