JOSEPH P. KINNEARY U.S. COURTHOUSE COURTROOM RENOVATION

New courtroom designed to reflect the exceptional Art Deco ornamentation found throughout the Joseph P. Kinneary U.S. Courthouse.

Project Details

The Columbus Courtroom was intended to incorporate state-of-the-art technology, including a giant wall-mounted LED screen, computer monitors on the benches and in the jury box, and a host of security cameras and other devices. IDEA developed a design scheme that was firmly based in the Art Deco visual character of the Kinneary Courthouse while concealing the technology as much as was feasible. Computer monitors were integrated into the millwork via monitor wells or screen walls which helped to conceal all but the tops of these pieces of equipment. The technology was visible if sought, but it didn’t make a strong impression and took a discreet second seat to the architecture of the room.
