Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

Article source: The American Institute of Architects (AIA)

Sited in a rolling meadow in Galway, Ireland, with uninterrupted views in four directions, the Biosciences Research Building (BRB) is the first phase of a new North Campus Science Precinct at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG). The BRB provides high technology science research space dedicated to cancer research, regenerative medicine, chemical biology and BSL3 animal research, and is one of the most energy efficient research buildings in the world dedicated to such an intense scientific agenda. It was also constructed for an extremely low cost per SF ($413), as compared to similar facilities, which typically cost $600-800/SF. In fact, 89% of the building is used for research space.

Bachelor Pad in Dublin Mountains, Ireland by Box Urban Design Architecture

Friday, March 18th, 2016

Article source: Box Urban Design Architecture

Existing Irish apartments frequently fail to meet the needs of their occupants and are viewed as an inadequate or undesirable housing option. The reconfiguration of existing apartments has the potential to contribute to and improve the existing urban high-density housing stock if exemplary precedents can be established.  This project embodies how a typical city-centre apartment can be reconfigured to meet the specific needs of the occupant and provide a desirable living-environment of architectural, sustainable and social quality.

Island Dwelling in Co. Galway, Ireland by O’Neill Architecture

Friday, February 13th, 2015

Article source: O’Neill Architecture

CONCEPT
For this building project on the Aran Islands, Co. Galway, we developed the designs from the simplicity of the landscape; working with the given contours, solar orientation and making reference to traditional design. The living area located on the upper level allows spectacular views of the Cliffs of Moher. It is connected to a terrace which is so orientated as to create a sun-trap and catch the sun from late morning until the last of the evening sun rays are obscured by the above lying escarpment. The views from the road are shielded by part of the house, creating the private and sheltered outdoor space. Fortunately the escarpment acts as a wind break for the prevailing westerly winds ensuring great use of this outdoor terrace in most weather conditions.

Airfield is a 35-acre working farm and estate located in the southern suburbs of Dublin, open to the public since 1998; it is an area of pastureland, woodland and walled gardens into which a patchwork of buildings has been introduced focused on Airfield House itself, which was the Over end family home from 1894. Airfield Trust was established in 1974 by the Overend sisters, Letitia and Naomi, as a charitable organisation with an educational and recreational remit provided through an environment connecting people and nature through the farm and gardens. To enhance the visitor experience and expand the facilities at Airfield a number of key spatial drivers have been put in place:
