kununurra courthouse

The Kununurra Replacement Courthouse design interprets local physical qualities to capture the uniqueness of Kununurra in a building that is dignified and welcoming. The design re-introduces the value of the regional courthouse with a civic, landmark building that will represent the local community and promote the role of the courthouse as a centre for dispute resolution.

The building is designed and organised to engage with the immediate surrounding context and distant context, this connection is both visual and physical. From a distance the building is viewed in the context of Kelly’s Knob and Hidden Valley the roof form of our building creates an immediate dialogue while creating a variety of volumes for the interior spaces. The height of the roof is also carefully controlled to relate to the immediate adjacent buildings.
