Together with the architect and Sevil Peach, bs;bp gained a deep understanding of the interaction between various players in the judicial organisation and the complexities involved.
We conducted desk research and in-depth interviews with judges, barristers and other stakeholders. The grandeur of the court halls reflect the confidence of the rulings, elevated by an interior that feels warm and personal
Judges, victims and defendants all come together in this building. We were particularly mindful of their needs for separation, privacy and a routing that helps prevent confrontation. Clever and effective logistics encourage the appropriate human connections on every level.
“Our shared way of working with bs;bp, helped us to find the right balance for the client between design quality, investment and future operational costs.”
