Haifa Courthouse

An ode to light and geometry: this is the Haifa Courthouse in Israel. Its facades and interior walls are clad in Niwala White, a white stone able to transmit a strong sense of purity.

It is an extremely beautiful building, with a contemporary architecture that is also simple, light, essential and authentic. It was designed by the Chyutin Architects architecture practice and built in Haifa using some very special materials. Among them the Niwala White Natural Stone, a sedimentary stone that is highly unusual owing to the considerable amount of fossil remains and mollusc shells present in its composition. Its even texture and very white appearance give it a beauty that is hard to match.
In the Haifa Courthouse it was used as cladding for all the facades, combined with large glazed surfaces that fill the interior with natural light. Niwala White, a highly insulating cladding, is also present on the internal walls, contributing to the building’s energy efficiency. The floors of some of the interior zones are paved with Crema Marfil Coto®, one of the flagship Levantina marbles. The result is a highly resilient surface that is perfect for this type of public space while retaining a powerful appeal.
