"Dept of the Environment Office, Wexford"

Under the government policy of decentralisation, the Irish Department of the Environment was relocated to the town of Wexford, some 130 km south of Dublin city.

The brief for a new headquarter building for the Department sought an excellent working environment within an economic, efficient building which would be an exemplar of sustainable design in every respect. The design was also required to maximise the potential and address the challenges of the steeply sloping, scenic site.
