LOCATION / Inverness
We recently re-visited the impressive Inverness Justice Centre, a project that was completed in 2021 utilising METALtech uk bespoke mesh solution’s and TECHNAL UK façade products.
This modern facility is the first in a new generation of Scottish courts- bringing together, in one location, the various organisations that support the justice system.
The unique design offers a dignified civic response to an edge of town location through the repetitive columnar façade, visible public areas and the creation of a new park. A massive concrete structure serves to mitigate noise issues generated by the adjacent Longman Road and the blue light activities of the adjacent police station while also offering cooling to the spaces. This material selection is continued through the overall material palette which is rigorously stripped back to its essential components. The emphasis being on the creation of a certain northern dignity through an elemental, austere expression.
