The construction of the Tana Courthouse is inspired by the Sami Culture, built in respect of the surrounding nature. The core of the building is constructed with concrete elements masked with solid larch. Larch is also covering the slanted walls on the exterior. The colour of the cladding will change over time and turn into a shade of grey. This way the building is brought into the scenery. In the courtrooms the floors are made of broken slates and ash. A selection of the windows are tinted with colour to create a feeling of the northern light dancing above their heads.
