Client: Bar Council of Northern Ireland
In 1997 Robinson McIlwaine were approached by the Bar Council to design bespoke headquarters for the Barristers in Northern Ireland. The May Street site was formerly home to the Variety Market, situated adjacent to the existing Royal Courts of Justice. The brief required two buildings; a headquarters for Barristers (Bar Library) and a purpose-built building for the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP). The Bar library was designed to accommodate 400 barristers; providing consultation rooms, administrative areas and a restaurant. The DPP building provides office accommodation, meeting rooms and filing areas for the DPP.
