Courts and Courthouses

You might think the long-established protocols and practices of our justice system wouldn’t leave architects much room to play with how courtrooms and courthouses are configured. But you’d be wrong. Courthouse design is constantly evolving. A good example is the trend to move away from the traditional one courtroom/one judge’s chamber toward more collegial spaces and courtroom sharing.


Keeping abreast of the latest standards and trends is our mission.


That said, the architects at Elevatus always design court buildings that reflect the dignity of the proceedings within, are responsive to local context, needs, and budgets, and represent only the very best practices.


Elevatus has experience in designing the full spectrum of courtrooms, which includes …

  • county courtrooms, both Circuit and Superior, civil and criminal,
  • courthouse renovations,
  • federal courts,
  • courtrooms within jail facilities, and

  • multi-story urban courthouses.


Examples of our design work for courthouses may be found in our Justice Portfolio. To learn more about partnering with us to build the court facility you envision, explore our website.
