The distinct geological character of Ontario’s Grand River influenced the curvilinear composition of the atrium, site landscape and material choices of the Waterloo Region Courthouse. The team used locally sourced stone and a wavelike layout of skylights and lighting to create a welcoming judicial building that frames a new civic plaza in downtown Kitchener.
