Aylesbury Crown Court that located in Aylesbury, United Kingdom, was designed by HOK International Ltd. The building plan is linear, creating a long and narrow building; this suits the design of the four courts within and is favoured by the client, HMCTS (Her Majesty’s Court and Tribunal Service). The court’s blueprint addresses the complexity of designing courthouses: there are intricate segregated circulation routes for groups of people who must never meet except in a courtroom; efficiently planned with minimal corridors; public areas have been carefully controlled and maximises natural daylight.
The courthouse combines four Crown courts – one large and three standard in size – including public hall administration, consultation & witness rooms, judicial and custody accommodation and secure external areas. The building will be finished in Portland stone aims to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating.
