Tangipahoa Parish Courthouse Annex
The Tangipahoa Parish Courthouse Annex was designed to accommodate the offices of the Tangipahoa Parish Government. The government requested a new permanent facility that would be up to date but still fit in the rural vernacular in which it was situated. At approximately 10,000 sq. ft. the building layout consists of one large Council Chamber meeting room with office spaces arranged around a central hallway circling this center meeting room. The central council chamber room has high ceilings with clerestory windows allowing natural light into this space. The use of material such as St. Joe brick on the exterior and red oak wood trim on the interior seek to integrate the building with its rural surroundings yet still provide a new interesting facade into the existing city scape of Amite, Louisiana.
