New Civic Offices for Cork City Council, Ireland
Architect: ABK Architects
Client: Cork City Council
Contract value: €26M
Photography by: Dennis Gilbert/View

The project consists of approximately 9,200m2 of administrative offices and support space together with ancillary accommodation including 150m2 of crèche and roof and basement parking for 140. It comprises two articulated volumes: a marble-clad/rendered ‘service’ volume which forms a link to the existing classical City Hall and the new crystalline volume which contains the bulk of the office space. The project is structured around two key internal spaces – a dramatic, top-lit new Civic Hall and a narrow private Stair Hall. It includes exposed chilled concrete slabs and wind-assisted ventilation.
