The ACT Supreme Court Redevelopment PPP project involved the complete redevelopment of the existing Supreme Court building dating from 1962 and the creation of a new ‘wing’ fronting onto Vernon Circle: one of the key urban nodes in Walter Burley Griffin’s esteemed master plan for Canberra.

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.

The resultant new wing of the Supreme Court was a 5-level structure following the radial nature of Vernon Circle further reinforcing this important urban pattern. The radial geometry increased façade perimeter which maximised natural light and view to all court rooms.
