Dublin Architecture – Selection

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Dublin Architecture. We aim to include projects in the capital of the Republic of Ireland that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed Dublin buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across the city. The focus is on contemporary buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

We have 2 pages of Dublin Architecture selections with links to many individual project pages.

Ballymun Boilerhouse Rediscovery Centre Building in Dublin
The project gives a new life to Ballymun’s old Boiler House and creates a National Centre of Excellence in Education for Sustainable development. The building previously housed four 35 tonne boilers that provided district heating and hot water to the local public housing scheme realised in the 60’s and subsequently demolished.

Irish Capital Architecture Designs – latest additions to this page, arranged chronologically:

Sean Treacy House, Buckingham Street Upper, Dublin 1 – added 28 Aug 2013
Design: Paul Keogh Architects
Sean Treacy House Dublin

Sean Treacy House was commissioned by Dublin City Council to replace a number of derelict 1960s flat blocks with a mixed tenure social housing development comprising apartments, houses and own door duplexes. This project redefines the neglected streetscape and creates a new shared and secure garden for the residents and their children. The design has prioritised urban form and residential amenity in equal measures, reinstating the 18th century streetscape with the semi-public courtyard contributes to the creation of a high level of amenity for the inner-city community.

Extension to Primary School Crumlin, Dublin – 29 Aug 2013
Design: Mary Laheen Architects
New Extension to Primary School Crumlin

The new extension is located at the street edge of the site on a busy road leading from the city centre to the west. The limited site necessitated a three- or four-storey building located towards the edge of the existing playground and therefore the provision of play space at roof level. The former playground now reduced in size is enclosed by the new and old buildings on three sides, the fourth side, to the west, is lined with existing mature sycamore and horse chestnut trees.

Ballyroan Library Building, Dublin 14
Design: Box Architecture

Ballyroan Library Building Dublin – 19 Mar 2013
The original library builidng was built in the 1980’s and served the community well over the past decades. However the library became outdated, in need of upgrading and became too small to deal with the collection of resources available to the community for reference or borrowing. After much consideration the existing building was demolished and rebuilt, doubling the size of the original library. A complete rebuild was deemed quicker, less disruptive, economic and a better environmentally sustainable solution.

UCD Student Centre Dublin
New building at University College Dublin’s Belfield Campus – a new epicentre of sporting, social and academic life. The building occupies a unique position in the history of the Belfield campus, as both the largest single architecture project since the original masterplan, and the first to be funded entirely by its students.

Dublin artists studio
The client, John Graham, an artist based in Dublin, required a new studio space at the end of his garden. Due to the format of his work he needed to be able to lay it out and observe from a height. This was the premise from which the design emerged.
