Lindsey-Flanigan Courthouse
 Back to profile Page    Next Project 

The new Denver Justice Center is conceived as an extension of the Civic Center that includes the historic State Capitol, the City/County Building and the US Mint. The new 317,000 SF Lindsey-Flanigan Courthouse is the anchor of the new Justice Center, with capacity for 35 courtrooms, support spaces, holding areas and staff areas for County, District and Juvenile courts.  

The design approach maximizes cost and functional efficiency by organizing the building with eight courtrooms per floor paired around holding cells and a secure elevator.  Public circulation, including the primary entrance from the plaza, is organized along the east side of the building, facing a new public plaza. The building is a collaborative design between RicciGreene Associates and Klipp Architects, with RicciGreene responsible for programming, planning, and courtroom design through construction documents stage.

The Lindsey-Flanigan Courthouse recently received an Honor Award AIA Denver and a Citation Award from the AIA Colorado.
