Harris County Juvenile Justice Center
Architect: Morris Architects
Renovations to the Harris County Juvenile Justice Center, originally constructed in 1951 as the County’s Criminal Courts Building. The nine-story facility has over 338,000 SF and contains 210 juvenile detention beds, Juvenile Courts, Juvenile Administration, Offices for Justices of the Peace 1 and 2, and the Precinct 1 Constable.

Another requirement of Harris County was the salvage and re-use of numerous original items from the building, such as desks and benches.
