Mark Wilde has worked on a number of previous law court designs like the Queen Elizabeth II Courts of Law in Brisbane, “which took a radical departure from traditional court design by exhibiting a high level of transparency and lightness”, says Wilde.

This element was built upon in the design of Shepparton Law Courts, where natural light weaves throughout the building. Court design we find, is a lot more complex and involved than we thought.
