The proposed Coffs Harbour Justice Precinct will provide a new court house, police station, shared custody wing and public forecourt for the Coffs Harbour region. This paper examines
how the design works to integrate the findings of the recent ARC Linkage projects coordinated by the Justice Research Group. Further, the spatial and architectural qualities can actively give those using the court house a sense of dignity in the face of demands for security and standardization.
