The 187,032-sf East County Hall of Justice in Dublin, Calif., will share its Alameda County site with a new 45,000-sf county building. Both were designed by the San Francisco office of KMD Architects. The new five-story glass tower will be oriented to take advantage of daylighting, with exterior sunshades preventing unwanted heat gain and glare. The building is targeting LEED Silver. Strong horizontal massing helps both buildings better match their low-rise and residential neighbors. The justice complex will have 12 criminal courts and one traffic court. The county building will house offices for the public defender, district attorney, and probation programs.
