London-based architects Serie in collaboration with local Singaporean firm Multiply Architects, have designed an extension to a law court in Singapore with terracotta-clad courtrooms stacked up inside a giant cage. The design features strategies for creating an eco-friendly building such as using high-rise gardens to filter the afternoon sun, naturally-ventilated corridors and bringing daylight into the interaction areas.
The two towers are linked by a series of foot bridges that enable the controlled circulation necessary for the courtroom process. One building will contain criminal courtrooms while the other will hold the judge’s chambers and supporting functions. Check out the images about Subordinate Courts Complex in Singapore below:
