Client: Capitol Courts Consortium
Architect: Bates Smart & Katsieris Origami: Architects-in-Association
The ACT Supreme Court Redevelopment project involved the complete redevelopment of the existing ACT Supreme Court building dating from 1962 and the creation of a new ‘wing’ designed to front Vernon Circle, one of the key nodes in Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahoney's esteemed master plan for Canberra. Bates Smart and Katsieris Origami were engaged as architects in association for the Capitol Courts Consortium Public Private Partnership bid.
The design carefully mediated between existing heritage buildings and areas of national importance with the creation of contemporary courts facilities including 6 new court rooms, judicial accommodation, juror facilities, courts registry, courts public spaces and secure holding areas.
