Saskatchewan Provincial Courthouse

The design of the Saskatchewan Provincial Courthouse blends a modern interpretation with the traditional courthouse aesthetic, ensuring that it both captures the region’s essence and functions efficiently. A key focus during the design process was finding effective solutions for the intricate dynamics involving the general public, victims, court staff, judiciary, police, and prisoners.

The courthouse houses three trial courts, two docket courts, dedicated meeting rooms for lawyers and clients, holding cells, secure sally ports for prisoner transportation, office spaces, file storage, and underground parking spaces for judges. Notably, it stands as the first courthouse in Saskatchewan to introduce a circular mediation room, specifically tailored to better serve the needs of Aboriginal clients.
