Grosvenor Square in Dublin, Ireland by SCULLION architects

Friday, November 17th, 2017

Article source: SCULLION architects 

The property is a three-storey terraced house on a fine Georgian Square.  The house is a Protected Structure (Listed) and occupied by a young family who use the lower ground floor as their primary living spaces rather the upper ground floor rooms, which would have originally been designed as the main reception rooms.  Houses of this type and era generally had servant’s quarters on the lower ground floor with the family living on the upper floors, raised away from the rear garden.  As a consequence, ceiling heights were generally lower. These lower ground floor rooms have become more coveted in modern times with the shift in domestic lifestyles towards a stronger relationship between living spaces and the garden than would have originally been the case when built in the late 19th Century.

55 Percy Place in Dublin, Ireland by ODOSarchitects

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

Article source: ODOSarchitects

Situated adjacent to the canal and fronting onto Haddington Road this innovative mixed use development takes up the geometry of its site and remakes the street edge. The scheme emerged from an existing grant of permission which the architect was tasked with reconfiguring and thereby improving the scheme with the agreement of the local authority.

Ussher Library in Dublin, Ireland by McCullough Mulvin Architects

Sunday, December 11th, 2016

Article source: McCullough Mulvin Architects 

The Ussher Library in Trinity College is a landmark building for Dublin. The project – initiated as an international architectural competition design collaboration with KMD Architecture, Dublin – provides 750 undergraduate reader places and space for 350,00 volumes in a state-of-the-art library building with exposed boardmarked concrete and granite finishes. The concept established three prismatic sculptural blocks on a podium set North-South across the site; the two longer blocks are connected by an atrium. The taller is closed and stone-clad and dedicated to book storage (a tower of books), the other, lower, more dynamically shaped in stone and glass – contains reading rooms with views over College Park; the third block is for a Book Conservation Laboratory. Each block is served by a core at one end which anchors the plan; each is designed as a solid planar element without advance or recession – the line of stone cladding is carried through into the atrium in timber panelling; the atrium glazing is perceived as a separate shard-like element, while the Conservation Block roof is an origami -like folded plane of glass and metal. The new building forms a functional unit with the existing Berkeley and Lecky libraries – all three are connected under podium level and the Berkeley Library has been retained as the main entrance to the whole complex – a new staircase descends from it to a new orientation space serving all three. The library had to fit into a very strong urban context, standing on an edge condition between Trinity and Dublin; it keeps to the grid of the College buildings while recognising the line of Nassau Street. The building is like a gateway – three books forming open space between them which frame views and routes from the city into the College. By its shape and location on the site, the project establishes two strongly configured urban spaces at podium level – one against the rere of the Berkeley, open at the corners in the Trinity manner, with generous steps from the Park and Library square- the other between the Ussher Library and the street.

Airfield Evolution in Dublin, Ireland by Solearth Ecological Architecture

Friday, January 30th, 2015

Article source: Solearth Ecological Architecture 

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:

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.
