The Mid-Louth Civic Services Centre development comprises of office and workshop facilities for Louth County Council and the Office of Public Works and a non-jury court for the Courts Service. Existing Louth County Council/OPW facilities on site were rundown and required substantial upgrading.
The brief was for a ‘Green’ building that would be inviting to the local community and well integrated into the adjoining ‘Fair Green’ public park. The final product is a building with a dynamic architectural design coupled with impressive sustainable credentials. The building was also designed to be accessible and inviting to the public and to become a focal point and part of the local community. The brief for the Court building also included the segregation of circulation routes for the prisoners, judiciary and members of the public. A clear and legible marriage of form and function helped achieve the requirement of the brief.
