QUEENS SQUARE LAW COURTS
GroupGSA and Hassell undertook one of the most significant projects in Sydney with the refurbishment of the Queens Square Law Courts Building. This 27 storey, 1970s modern heritage building in Macquarie Street, houses the High Court of Australia, Federal Court of Australia, Supreme Court of NSW and their associated operational departments. Fundamental to the design was the implementation of the philosophy of an open, transparent court process, the collegiality of judicial staff and incorporation of new technologies. Design quality, the creation of spaces and the selection of materials befitting this important public institution, together with durability and longevity were key drivers in the design process.
