Fourth District Court of Appeal
State of California
AC Martin as a member of a design-build team with Swinerton Builders and Vitetta Group, provided architecture and engineering services for this 42,000-SF State Appellate Court, which includes a 1,600-SF courtroom, judicial chambers, and a 2,300-SF law library.
The dignified two-story design recalls the architecture of downtown Riverside’s historic public buildings. An ellipse of two-story high columns connected by a steel-trellised canopy creates an elegant entrance that recalls the visual hallmarks of courthouses. The primary tenants of the building are the State of California Court of Appeal, 4th Appellate District, Division 2. The development timeline was 24 months and the facility was completed on time and on budget.
