1847 – Design for County Court House, Belfast, Co. Antrim

Architect: Charles Lanyon


Unbuilt design proposal for County Court House by Charles Lanyon. With its curved screen walls, it is extremely reminiscent of the former Parliament Building in Dublin. As it was the famine years in Ireland, Lanyon was instructed to reduce the cost and further designs were produced before the building opened in 1850.
