The State Courts comprise two towers, with an area of 113,000 sqm. A collaboration with Serie Architects and Multiply Architects LLP, the development is linked by a series of sky bridges that enable the circulation of visitors and staff members.
Ribbed terracotta pre-cast concrete walls in the courtrooms create recall the tiled roofs of nearby historical Chinatown shophouses. At night, external lighting turns the front tower into a volume of glowing glass, highlighting its ribbed claddings.
Within, the courtrooms and offices were designed with a specified luminance capacity, while public circulation areas are illuminated more atmospherically.
