The Rock Wing, Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, Wins 'Building of the Year – Medical and Health’ at the Building & Architect of the Year Awards


The Rock Wing at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, Dublin was announced as the winner of the ‘Building of the Year – Medical and Health’ Award at Friday evening’s Building & Architect of the Year Awards.

On the project being announced as the recipient of the award, Paul Connolly, Project Director said: “This award is testament to the talented team we have at Scott Tallon Walker Architects. The design solution navigated the intricacies of an inner-city site, a live hospital, a new entrance, and streetscape in a prominent conservation area while providing a seamless link over eight floors to the existing hospital. Delivered amid the pandemic under the constraints of a two-year programme, the new Rock Wing delivered 98 single-occupancy rooms for an additional 5000 patients annually, reducing the impact on critical services within the hospital and wider community.” 

Thank you to the Building & Architect of the Year Awards for this award.
