|“Swope did everything we asked of them on this very complex project. Judges, jurors, employees, and visitors—they are all in agreement that this is one splendid facility.”
Owner: Louisville Metro Government
This project involved the construction of a 10-story courts complex in downtown Louisville, with offices for the Supreme Court and Appellate Court, and 23 courtrooms. Interior spaces included judges’ chambers, jury rooms, a public waiting area, conference rooms, witness waiting rooms, jurors’ areas, clerks’ offices, and a holding area for prisoners awaiting their court appearance. In addition to visitors, witnesses, and jurors, over 400 full-time employees are housed in this facility, which is one of the most heavily trafficked facilities in the state. Swope Design Group consulted with the project architect to provide a full range of interior design services, including programming, space planning, furniture specifications, finish specifications, signage specifications, bid preparation and administration, and project management services.
