Kuwait Justice Complex

Kuwait Justice Complex

Kuwait City, Kuwait

One of the largest courthouses in the world

Located in downtown Kuwait City, twin 50-story towers designed by WS Atkins & Partners Overseas with planning and interior design by Perkins Eastman, stand tall against the backdrop of the Arabian Gulf. The new facilities provide courtrooms for the Court of First Insistence, Court of Appeals, and the Cassation Court—the highest court in the country-as well as holding areas, offices, and a variety of other adjudication and administrative spaces. The building is organized around single loaded corridors, providing natural light and views throughout all public areas and administrative office floors. Designed to be flexible, court floors will accommodate various courtroom sizes and other needs as the Kuwait court system evolves over time.
