Thoughts

This rehabilitation includes a new Presiding Courtroom as part of a large masterplan to restore the entire Bexar County Courthouse to its 1926 roots.  The new Presiding Courtroom occupies an area previously used as offices and  was redesigned as the beautiful space it is today.  In addition to the courtroom, an adjacent waiting area was developed to ease overcrowding in the main corridor.  In addition, massive granite arches were restored and utilized as the entrances to the new courtroom.
