2008 – Drury Street Dublin

Architect: FKL Architects


A invited-competition entry by FKL for a commercial development in Drury Street in Dublin’s south city centre. Currently the site of a multilevel carpark. A mixed use building with several floors of apartments, three floors of offices, and five floors each of retail and parking. The various uses within the building are all accessed through a central twisting atrium.

The concept was that building is active over an 18 hour period – a resident of the apartments on the top 2 floors can walk to work in the city centre passing through the retail floors, stopping to pick up a coffee and on the return journey home.
