Shepparton Law Courts recognised at 2019 GOV Design Awards

Designed by Architectus in association with GHD Woodhead and Guymer Bailey Architects, Shepparton Law Courts has been awarded Silver at the 2019 GOV Design Awards in the ‘Architecture-Community & Civic’ category.

An exemplar of civic architecture, the redevelopment supports original courthouse features that create a sense of solidity, protection and permanency, whilst incorporating contemporary justice applications and sustainable initiatives that provide openness and accessibility; as well as natural light and ventilation.

Architectus Principal, Mark van den Enden said “Court buildings are extraordinary in terms of the impact it can have on its user, they are the place of life-changing decisions that go far beyond the experience of place. It was imperative that court participants feel they are treated equally and respectfully before the law, as justice space designers, it was important to deliver impartial and deferential design solutions. The Shepparton Justice Precinct is a place which belongs to the people, to a Shepparton urban character and to the State of Victoria.”

The Gov Design Awards recognise design projects within the government, community and public sectors.
