Long Island Federal Courthouse
Structure in General
- Located in Central Islip, adjacent to the existing county courthouse, this federal courthouse takes advantage of panoramic views over both Great South Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
- This building reinterprets the courthouse type to enable it to function as a new kind of civic institution, receptive to public events as well as to the formalities of the judicial process.
- Designed in a partnership with Richard Meier & Partners, the 12-story building was placed on a podium to give it a presence on an otherwise flat and undifferentiated exurban site.
- The north façade is faced with stone and pierced by horizontal windows.
- The structure, one of the tallest on Long Island, is meticulously organized to accommodate as many proceedings as possible.
- Measuring in at 870,000 sq. ft., the facility houses 23 separate courtrooms, 24 judges' chambers, a law library, office space for several Federal agencies and a cafeteria.
