Cork Criminal Courthouse
Architect:OPW Architects, Wilson Architecture, Bluett O’Donoghue
Award Type:Irish Architecture Awards
The Cork Criminal Courthouse settings were moved to this new facility from the existing nineteenth century courthouse in Washington Street, its site being too small to allow expansion of court and custody facilities. The decision to move criminal court functions to a new building has meant a significant improvement in court administration and it has also brought life to this area of the city centre. The decision to move Criminal Court functions to a new building constructed in the former playground to the rear of the 19c Model School has meant a significant improvement in Court administration and it has also brought life to this area of the city centre.
