Manchester Crown Courts

A contemporary addition to an important civic institution.

This award-winning development of ten crown courts included the restoration of four Victorian courts to their original condition, along with extensive alterations to this landmark city centre Grade II – listed building to provide a further four crown courts. A new extension contains an additional two crown courts plus ancillary accommodation. The heart of the building is a new glazed atrium, linking the old and new structures and resolving the complex circulation requirements.
