This project involved taking three separate buildings and integrating them into one structure with harmonizing infill additions. The result was a dramatic increase in space at one half what a brand new facility would have cost.
The infill construction doubled the floor space while reducing perimeter wall area by 50%. Storm windows saved money in lieu of replacement windows and ceiling insulation further reduced space-heating costs. Spacious circular courtrooms create a better communication forum for trials, and are integrated into three separate circulation systems that completely separate the public from court personnel and prisoners. Tunnels to the existing jail ensure safe prisoner access.
The result of this effort is a totally unified, restrained yet dramatic addition to historic May’s Landing.
