The justice palace of San Sebastian is located at the city´s old military hospital. The building is extended under a common cover which allows to notice the new and old parts as a whole. A break in the facade marks the access to the building and serves as a connection between the old facade and the new construction.
Functionally, the building is solved around a landscaped courtyard into which the common spaces are pointed, whereas the closed programs are displayed in facade.
Its implantation creates a new passage under the railway facilitating the connections of the Egia area with the town centre.
