This LEED Gold Certified building is designed to emulate early 20th-century courthouses. The poured-in-place epoxy terrazzo with its classically derived pattern reinforces and unifies the traditional architecture of the structure. Highlighting the dramatic space of the circular lobby are alternating black-and-white diamond shaped terrazzo panels, increasing in size as they radiate out from the cast bronze State Seal of Florida centered in the floor.
