Modern technology meets old time grandness.

Historically courthouses were grand, prominent places in a community – but today they are often oppressive spaces with little natural light and poor natural room acoustics. Our goal for the Thunder Bay Consolidated Courthouse was to restore the grandness of the courts, while meeting all of the technical and acoustical requirements such as incorporating an A/V system.
Part of the project also included designing the courthouse with First Nations cultural traditions in mind that met the technical requirements. Now the entire courthouse is filled with light. And the acoustics are excellent whether the A/V system is being used or not. It has set an example of what modern day courthouses could – and should – be.
