The construction of the Tana Courthouse is inspired by the Sami Culture, built in respect of the surrounding nature. Larch and concrete are material that are used throughout the construction. The core of the building is constructed with concrete elements masked with solid larch. Larch is also covering the slanted walls on the exterior. This way the snow does not stick to the walls, and the building is brought into to scenery. In the courtrooms the floors are made of broken slates and ash. A selection of the windows are tinted with color to create a feeling of the northern light coming inside.
