City of Frisco Municipal Court Adaptive Re-Use
The Frisco Municipal Court is an adaptive re-use project that converted and upgraded the City of Frisco’s original 17,395-square-foot Senior Center building into a modern municipal court facility intended to serve the City for many years to come.
The facility houses two courtrooms, a central jury room, Judge’s suite, court clerk’s office and all of the City’s court administrative staff. In addition, it consolidates all the court’s record storage to a central filing room.
The 6,320-square-foot expansion consists of white limestone with brick to match existing facades and provides a timeless design that complements the existing downtown architecture. The double height grand lobby/waiting room and check in area is ballistic reinforced for the safety and security of staff and patrons. Abundant natural light fills the new entrance and provides a welcoming environment. The new colonnade adds a welcoming touch to complement the monumentality of the main entrance.
The interior incorporates a lot of natural light into the space, with high wood ceilings in the main lobby, white and grey toned terrazzo floor tile throughout the public area and in the courtroom wood veneer wraps all walls. Back of house interiors include a neutral toned palette with light grey carpet tile, white walls and walnut office furniture.
