Lawyers raise the bar for design with renovated Delaware courthouse
Architecture firm Francis Cauffman has completed renovations of a historic 233,880-sf courthouse in downtown Wilmington, Del., to make way for the new headquarters of Delaware law firm Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor LLP. Built in 1916, the Daniel L. Herrmann Courthouse received modern office upgrades to fit in with its iconic Beaux-Arts design. The U-shaped building, with four floors and a mezzanine, features a refurbished central bronze stairwell, a two-story atrium, and an outdoor plaza and garden. A 100-car garage was added beneath the courthouse. Foundations were laid for possible future expansion. +
