Justice Centre

Bochum, Germany

Responsible architect: HASCHER JEHLE Architektur

Hoba Steel – Products: SPIN® Safe Warning and Guidance Tiles Type B
Installation: 2017

The new building of the Justice Centre in Bochum is an architectural eye-catcher. The building complex of six structures combines four courts. 

The imposing flight of steps at the entrance leads the visitor into the roofed atrium of the first inner courtyard, which opens to the outside through a glass façade. The courtrooms outside are reached via galleries and open staircases. 

The guidance system for the blind by Hoba Steel fits in architecturally from the beginning and creates the possibility of orientation between the individual parts of the building as well as the individual floors. The contrast required by the standard for better recognisability is realised by incorporating dark tiles on both sides of the tiles. The system thus not only provides orientation, but also adds another element to the architecture of the building.
