District Court Building. VII Branch Department in Krosno Odrza?skie


The building at 16 Piastowska Str. (former Ger. Grüne Wiese) was originally a prestigious residential villa, currently serving as the seat of the Local Department of the District Court in Krosno Odrzańskie. It is a classic example of a villa urbana, i.e. a city villa, located in the immediate vicinity of the park, providing its owners with silence and intimacy. Designed on a square plan, the four-storey building is characterized by historicism typical of that time, combining Neo-Baroque and Neo-Renaissance styles. On the side of Piastowska Str. (south-west) there is a two-story, closed loggia, closed on the 1st floor with a balcony, surrounded by a balustrade finished with stone balusters supported on the base and topped with a plinth. In the north-west corner of the villa there is an avant-corps, ended with a four-sided cupola roof.

Historical background

Originally, the building was a residential villa, built in the second half of the 19th century in the historicist style. After World War II, until the 1990s, the city authorities gave it a different function and handed the building over to the military garrison in Gubin, where the headquarters of the Garrison Soldier's Club was established. The villa's ground floor was often used as a cloakroom for artists at municipal and military events held in the adjoining amphitheater on the west-north side of the building.

At the turn of the 20th and 21st centuries, the building was handed over to the city, and later to the District Court in Krosno Odrzańskie, transforming the former villa into a local municipal court. In the years 2012-2013, comprehensive renovation and conservation works were carried out, including the renovation of the roof, protection of the cellars against moisture and renovation of the damaged external elements of the building. Thus, one of the most representative Gubin's villas regained its former, elegant character.
