The site is a ‘left-over’ back-land area surrounded by warehousing, highly engineered roads and motorways carrying heavy traffic. The design challenge was to transform this into a people friendly business destination and gateway into Sandyford.

This involved also working closely with the Local Authority Traffic and Parks Departments on their proposed design for a relief road through the site transforming it into an urban tree-lined boulevard avenue that, in addition to creating a desirable business address, also connects directly with the Luas public transport and the urban centre of Sandyford.

 

Scott Tallon Walker Architects worked collaboratively with Mitchell + Associates Landscape Architects and O’Connor Sutton Cronin Engineers to create a high quality public realm and landscape setting that incorporates water attenuation as a natural feature to attract bio-diversity.

Each building includes substantial facilities for cyclists. A single level basement car park extends under the buildings.

 

The development which is part of an overall masterplan for the 5.7 ha site, consists of three 5 storey buildings providing approx. 24,000 sq.m of office space. Each building is approx 8,000 sq.m with a central atrium allowing maximum flexibility for a wide range of tenants.

High environmental standards are achieved with each building designed to be net zero energy through passive design measures, including building form, materials and photo-voltaic panels.
