Royal Courts of Justice
Architect: Feilden and Mawson
Client: Ministry of Justice
Project completion: 2008
This Grade I listed building was designed by G.E. Street and completed in 1882. With many internal changes of level as well as separate circulation routes for the judiciary and for members of the public the Royal Courts of Justice were largely inaccessible. By the 21st century this was considered unacceptable, given the function of the building and the rights of the public for access to it.
David Bonnett Associates was instructed to identify the access issues and develop a comprehensive strategy with solutions that respected the historic fabric. The phased strategy included proposals for a limited number of lifts, at key locations, to provide access between different levels. Some proposals have already been implemented while others are planned to follow as part of a phased programme of implementation.
