Restoring a landmark
Montgomery County’s neoclassical courthouse, originally built in 1856, is a landmark in the center of Norristown—a symbol of government in Pennsylvania’s third most populous county. The project, a comprehensive renovation and expansion, is restoring its historic features, modernizing its interiors, and making its copper dome the focal point of the Justice Center campus. With the addition of a 322,500-square-foot building, the project will turn an inward-facing complex into an open, welcoming place. A new glass-enclosed atrium links the existing and new buildings, creating a bright entrance to the complex while emphasizing both the rich past and promising future of Montgomery County.
