Planning | Design | Government | Courthouse | 600,000 SF

KUWAIT  The two 600,000 SF, 14-story buildings have been sculpted so that the courtroom components comprise an outer shell that envelopes and protect the buildings’ other program areas. While the three sided enclosure of the courtroom shell has been designed to symbolically protect the softer and more malleable support offices, the massive pre-cast courtroom shell and lighter roof overhang also acts as a shading device to protect the building from the harsh Kuwaiti sun.
