The City Court of Copenhagen is housed in C.F. Hansen’s listed Town Hall and Courts complex in Nytorv square. Since 1985 the drafting offi ce has completed restoration and interior decor assignments in the buildings. The Court House facade facing Nytorv was restored in 1992-1993 and refurbishment of the facades facing Slutterigade and Kattesundet executed in 2000-2003.
Since 2006 the drafting office has conducted preliminary investigations and the main project to refurbish the remaining facades on sides facing the courtyard and onto Hestemøllestræde, as well as refurbishing the roof on the Nytorv side.
Some changes have been made to the organizational structure of the City Court, resulting in the creation of new section offices and the conversion and re-appointment of a number of courtrooms. Access and toilet facilities for the disabled and audience amenities have been improved, including new public information offices. The buildings housing the Probate Division, the Sheriff’s Court and the Land Registration Department have undergone major refurbishment and modernization.
