Palmer Courthouse

Palmer, Alaska

Designing for justice in the Mat-Su Valley.

The 1985 original was the first State court facility that incorporated contemporary security measures and 3 separate circulation pathways (public, judicial & prisoners). Recognized for its elegant aesthetic and thoughtful design, MCG updated the facility to fit the needs of the rapidly-growing Matanuska-Susitna Borough.

Despite construction in different decades by multiple contractors, the expanded courthouse maintained an integrated, unified design that is as fresh today as the day it first opened.
