Charlemont Square, Dublin
Recently completed, Charlemont Square is the second phase of the transformative Charlemont Street regeneration placemaking project in the heart of Dublin 2. This €210 million mixed-use development entirely reimagined more than c.13,000m2 of mostly derelict space close to the city centre. With 203 subcontractors involved, Charlemont Square represents the largest ever excavation between the canals in Dublin. No fewer than six tower cranes worked non-stop throughout the duration of this project and over 300 flights of precast stairs were installed. Legacy placemaking excellence has been achieved through the new artfully designed and skillfully located public realm area at central square, which will be used by the local community for hosting cultural events and for a variety of recreational uses into the future.
Maynooth University’s TSI Building
Maynooth University’s Technology, Society and Innovation (TSI) Building declared “a poster child in terms of programme, quality and coordination”
JJ Rhatigan recently handed over the €35 million Technology, Society and Innovation (TSI) Building at Maynooth University. This 10,554m2 building has been developed to meet the future education and skills needs of the next generation of students, and to enhance the University’s excellence in research. The TSI building has been designed to create an entirely new skyline within the campus for the approach to Maynooth town, with a roofline that ascends boldly. The façade of the main entrance has been designed to accommodate a biophilic zone at roof level, concealed behind a raking parapet wall, creating the illusion of a taller building. It is one of the largest education building within the State that operates entirely free of fossil fuels.
A generous public realm has been created outside the main entrance, allowing space for students and the wider community to gather into the future.
