palace of justice



The condition of the existing facade was thoroughly investigated before being cleaned using various techniques according to the nature of the stone.

The facade renovation meant that heavily damaged sections needed to be replaced. Artificial mortar was used to touch up and refill the facade where necessary. The natural stone was hardened at several locations.

Motifs were also touched up and reprofiled. The pediment and its statue of Lady Justice were reinforced with stainless steel beams.
