Brutalist Glasgow court listed

Keppie Henderson and Partners’ ‘monumental’ Glasgow Sheriff Court has been granted listed status

Built in the late 1979s and early 1980s the six-storey concrete behemoth in the Gorbals area of the city is the first post-war court facility in the country to be listed as grade B by Historic Scotland.

Elizabeth McCrone, Head of Listing and Designed Landscapes at Historic Scotland said the building was ‘an important public commission built in Scotland during the 1970s and early 1980s and is an excellent example of modern court architecture.’

Reputedly the busiest court in Europe McCrone added: ‘One of just 256 listed post-war buildings in Scotland, its new B-listed status is a recognition of the role it plays in the story of Scotland’s post-war architecture.’
