A. Grenville and William Davis Courthouse
- Brampton, Ontario
- Ontario Realty Corporation, Ministry of the Attorney General
- January 2000
The contemporary architectural design of the Brampton courthouse is based on a dynamic composition of glazed and solid areas that expresses the permanence and dignity of the court, as well as its openness and accessibility to the public it serves. Large expanses of glass bring views and daylight into courtroom waiting areas, providing calm to an often-stressful environment. Located close to the street edge, the building presents a prominent face to the community and acts as a gateway to the city of Brampton. The facility’s comprehensive, security-conscious design provides three separate circulation systems, for the public, judges and accused. The five-storey building houses 34 courts and eight motion rooms for both the Ontario and Superior Courts of Justice.
