Gandon House, Dublin 2011
Our work with the Office of Public Works and the Department of Social Protection is in three stages. Our original commission involved the relocation of 200 staff within a design and construction programme of only 3 months. We then prepared design strategies to improve the internal environment of the office spaces through the wrapping of the building with a climate screen, eliminating the need for air conditioning. We are currently developing public counters and photograph stations in joinery for a new public facility in the building.
