warrnambool law courts
2005

The new Warrnambool Law
Courts complex houses
Magistrates, County and
Supreme Courts and
Department of Justice
associated facilities.

It achieves a fine balance
between expressing the

strength and authority of the
law and providing an
approachable, non-threatening
environment for the residents
of this coastal community.

Extensive external sun shading
protects the northern and
western facades of the
building whilst maintaining
clear views out from all public
areas.

The soft muted palette of
materials responds to the
sandstone of the adjoining
historic Christchurch buildings
whilst crisp steel detailing
provides a clear distinction
between new and old.
