The new criminal courts complex in Dublin were designed by Henry J Lyons Architects and opened in 2010 and are among the most technologically advanced courts facilities in the World. Situated on the corner of Parkgate Street and Infirmary Road, the complex contains 22 courtrooms of varying sizes and is the largest courts project undertaken in Ireland for over 200 years. Located at the eastern tip of the Phoenix Park, its location continues the tradition of placing public buildings within sight of the River. Intelligent design allows the building to segregate judicial, juror, public and custodial circulation systems while also allowing natural light to enter each of the courtrooms. The perforated metal screen also controls glare, maintains privacy, becomes an acoustic barrier and also acts as an energy efficient double skin.
