Gibson Hotel

Located at the eastern end of Dublin’s north docklands, Point Village takes its name from its location alongside Dublin’s largest theatre and events venue. The exceptionally well-connected site – only 12 minutes by light rail from the capital’s main thoroughfare and 10 minutes via road-tunnel from the international airport – offered itself as the ideal location for a high-density, mixed use development to serve as the district centre for the project population growth in the surrounding docklands area.

Expertise

The hotel atrium, a dramatic double curved structure of glue-laminated ribs and glass, is flanked by external panoramic lifts that bring guests to the public areas of the hotel and forms a memorable entrance to the pedestrian plaza. The visitor is brought up to reception level via a series of escalators or a pair of panoramic glazed lifts.

The resident’s bar sits within the atrium space and takes advantage of the views south across the square and west towards the city.

A concourse runs the width of the fully glazed South façade and links the restaurant and bar. The bar and restaurant are arranged around a courtyard garden offering a more intimate experience. Similarly the guest bedrooms offer two different experiences either opening onto a series of three heavily landscaped courtyard gardens or facing the pedestrian street to the west with spectacular views over the square and the city.
