Description:  The building faces south and is a one story multi colored brick, concrete and glass structure. The building is located on landscaped grounds to the southwest of the center of Rock Springs and being 1.4 miles south of Interstate 80. Bricks of different hues echo the striations of the surrounding buttes, while reused snow fence boards lend concrete walls a rustic texture. Deep reveals in the walls refer to the ongoing process of erosion found throughout the landscape. The roof line is flat. In the interior, the central lobby balances highly refined millwork with the rough concrete. There are grille ceilings overhead. The two courtrooms have beetle kill pine panels and millwork which focus on the judge, witness stand, and lectern. The building is part of the County Justice Center and houses the County Circuit Court of the 3rd Judicial District.
