Greenwich Magistrates CourtImages1 / Information
Location London SE10
Squire & Partners’ design approach restores the Grade II listed former Greenwich Magistrates Court, and celebrates this by establishing a series of public spaces and courtyards, around which contemporary buildings articulate the transition between old and new through glazed links and skylights.
Local residents, visitors and hotel guests will be encouraged into the central landscaped spaces. New buildings respect the historic characteristics of the neighbourhood with their materials and proportions, becoming more playful at the centre of the site where glazed and perforated metal facades characterise the courtyard elevations.
Patterns and details across the development draw reference from historic elements found within the original Magistrates building. The result is a publically accessible development which anchors itself into the surrounding neighbourhood, whilst creating a destination with a unique character.
