This 31,500 SF judicial courts facility is located on a site in downtown Harlan, KY, immediately adjacent to the existing 1920s Greek Revival courthouse, and was designed in a manner that is contemporary, yet respectful and sensitive to the design of the existing historic building. The building incorporates circuit court clerk offices, a 150-seat district courtroom, district judge's chambers, a 150-seat circuit courtroom, circuit judge's chambers, and grand jury facilities.

The new facility allows the Harlan County judicial system to operate in a more secure, efficient manner by providing a secure parking area,  sally port area for defendant unloading, two group and one individual holding cells on each floor, secure client attorney conference space, separate defendant elevator, and video conference arraignment capabilities.
