When the historic Fayette County Courthouse was renovated, the design team sought to bring the building up to current code standards while preserving its architectural character. During this process, a key point of emphasis was highlighting the splendor of its original domed area while promoting daylight and views. To connect the lower floors to the dramatic upper domed space, the design team centered and aligned two Fireframes ClearFloor® fire-rated glass floor systems from Technical Glass Products under the dome. They transfer daylight into the center of the building, while also allowing lower-floor occupants to glimpse the grandeur of the dome.
