Ballyroan Parish Centre in Dublin, Ireland by Box Architecture

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

Article source: Box Architecture

The client, South Dublin County Council, approached our office to refurbish and extend the existing library of Marian Road in Ballyroan, Rathfarnham in 2006. The brief expanded and, as part of the project, we were asked to look at refurbishing the existing community centre, which was in need of upgrading to modern space and environmental standards. It became quite evident early on that the extent of area required for the pastoral element was too large and a separate building was required.

Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland by Populous

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

Article source: Bentley Systems, Incorporated

When sports architecture firm Populous was selected to design Aviva Stadium, a more than $575 million soccer and rugby stadium in Dublin, Ireland, it had to ensure that the unified form of the building’s concept was maintained from design development through to construction. With such emphasis placed on maintaining the purity of the original concept, functional considerations were made to serve the building’s form.

Cork Marina Park in Ireland by Okra Landschaps Architecten B.V.

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

Article source: Okra Landschaps Architecten B.V.

The contract to design Ireland’s first large scale urban wetlands and park surrounding a modern sports stadium, which it is hoped will act as a catalyst project for the redevelopment of Cork Docklands, has been awarded by Cork City Council.

The winning concept design, led by the Dutch landscape architects OKRA in cooperation with the Irish landscape architects REDscape, took the City Council’s brief for the redevelopment of Marina Park to a new level and offers an exciting vision of dynamic landscapes and ecosystems tailored to a modern and developing city. The design concept includes a sequence of urban water gardens, watercourses and wetland areas that will recycle storm water from the adjacent docklands and create a sustainable environment for the new city park on the River Lee.

Lower Grangegorman in Dublin 7, Ireland by ODOS Architects

Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Article source: ODOS Architects

This new residential development, for a motorcycle enthusiast, adjacent to No.10 Grangegorman Villas, Grangegorman, Dublin 7 is an alternative reaction to the more traditional city centre infill residential projects; an unapologetic piece of architecture sitting within a strong urban context defined by both site and planning constraints. The building is essentially two living plates over a workshop connected by a vertical service and circulation core. While the character of this new structure is unmistakeably contemporary it has been designed to sit discreetly within its more traditional context, while giving the end of the terrace the strong presence it deserves.

St. Patricks Cottages in Dublin, Ireland by ODOS Architects

DWELLING AT NO.48A ST. PATRICKS COTTAGES.

Our clients brief simply asked for a new family home with more light and space but they were  adamant that they did not want to move from the area. So, a new dwelling was designed to sit at  the bottom of their unloved and overgrown back garden. It is a small but prominent corner site,  bounded by a mixture of garden walls and back-land garage developments, exposed on its eastern  boundary by large open park and access road.

Moire Moire Moire : : 3 mews Houses in Dublin, Ireland by ODOS architects

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Article source: ODOS architects

The site for these three mews dwellings is located on an industrial lane way in Dublin 8, previously devoid of domestic life. This industrial setting was instrumental in informing the architectural language of these dwellings. From the outside, the three dwellings appear as a mysterious, robust and impenetrable mass. The cantilevered upper section is a composition of powder coated metal industrial flooring planks arranged in a structural steel frame. These voile like planks have been laid out in varying widths to create a rhythm to the street elevation and have been periodically doubled in depth creating a moiré or interference pattern.
