Kununurra Replacement Courthouse


TAG Architects in association with iredale pedersen hook Architects

The design interprets local physical qualities to capture the uniqueness of Kununurra in a building that is dignified and welcoming. The architecture re-introduces the value of the regional courthouse with a civic, landmark building that will represent the local community and promote the role of the courthouse as a centre for dispute resolution.

The architecture draws heavily on Kununurra’s geographic uniqueness. Natural landmarks, Kelly’s Knob and Hidden Valley are visible from the site; connecting the community and visitors to Kununurra in a manner that is respectful and sophisticated. External and internal materials reflect the layered and fractured nature of the landscape and introduce a materiality that is absolutely unique to Kununurra.
