The architectural design of the 1916 Court House is described as neoclassical. Neoclassical, or "new" classical, architecture is seen in buildings that are inspired by the classical architecture of ancient Greece and Rome.

Neoclassicism is a trend, or approach to design, that can describe several very different styles.A neoclassical building is likely to have some, but not all, of the following features:
The Palm Beach County 1916 Court House displays all of the above except the domed roof. Some examples of buildings with neoclassical architecture are The White House, Jefferson’s Monticello, the U.S. Supreme Court Building, some of the stately, pillared, plantation homes built before America’s Civil War and many courthouses, banks, libraries and public facilities in the United States built between 1893 and 1940.
