Hillsborough County Superior Court North

Comprehensive Renovation

This key judicial facility serves the Superior Court jurisdiction for the northern half of Hillsborough County. The existing facility, when measured against current civic design standards, was cold, stark, and unapproachable. Lavallee Brensinger Architects’ design for the renovation of the building transforms the interior, exterior, and site to create a facility that meets contemporary court standards, and expresses a refreshed, reserved, and friendly civic presence. The interior is reorganized to effectively separate public, court staff, and prisoner zones to facilitate both security and functional court operations.

The Hillsborough County Superior Court North is a LEED® Silver Certified Building.
