  13. 13. Urban Design & MasterplanningUrban Design & PlanningScott Tallon Walker Architects has over 50 years masterplanningexperience. Our projects include both green-field and urban;university, healthcare, science, technology and business campuses,as well as, residential and mixed-use communities. Some projectsinvolve a large soft landscape component, while others involve amore hierarchical urban public realm strategy.As development is part of an on-going process of evolution,masterplanning needs to provide flexibility for growth and changeover time, as well as meeting immediate needs. For example, since1960, we have produced a series of masterplanning strategies forthe RTE campus at Donnybrook, Dublin 4. These have allowedthe RTE organisation to grow and evolve, responding to changingtechnology and progressive work practices.As part of the masterplanning process, we consider the place beingcreated and how it will be used within a broader strategic context.This involves analysing and working with the physical surrounding,identifying potential uses and activities and their location, consideringmovement patterns and establishing infrastructure requirements.These are brought together within an overall planning frameworkbased on clear architectural, landscape and infrastructural principles,informed by economic and cultural values.We work closely with the Client team on identifying the short-,medium- and long term objectives which guide how themasterplanning strategy should be implemented. We prepare urbandesign guidelines on the overall form and structure of buildingsneeded to achieve the quality and character that delivers real andmeaningful places.We are very experienced at communicating ideas and proposals,as well as listening and working with our fellow professionals, toprovide the most appropriate workable strategy. As Design Teamleaders, we offer a holistic overall coordinated approach to the “City Quarter has achieved our expectations; it is fully let, is recognised as a seminal developmentmasterplanning process. for the development of Cork City, is well received by our tenants, the public and has already acted as a catalyst for further Dockland development in the city.

  24. 24. HealthcareMental Health FacilitiesCore issues to keep to the fore front of the design philosophy arethe therapeutic environment, cleanliness, aesthetics, security andsafety and sustainability. Scott Tallon Walker Architects believe thatthe design of successful Mental Health facilities should: • Promote staff efficiency by minimizing distance of necessary travel between frequently used spaces • Allow easy visual supervision of patients by limited staff. Nurse stations on inpatient units should be designed to provide maximum visibility of patient areas. • Include all needed spaces, but no redundant ones. This requires careful pre-design programming.

  63. 63. Transport & AviationScott Tallon Walker’s involvement with transport related projects goesback as far as the 1940’s with the design and construction of Busáras,Dublin’s central bus station. Busáras when completed in 1953, wasone of the first post Second World War examples of the InternationalStyle in Europe, and was the first modern building to be constructedin Ireland’s capital city. Its modern approach to massing, form andmateriality attracted reviews and attention from all over Europe.The new Air Traffic Control Centre at Shannon, on Ireland’s westernseaboard, for the Irish Aviation Authority, vitally controls all air trafficover the Atlantic between North America and Europe. Recent projectsinclude the Air Traffic Control Towers for Ireland’s international airportsat Dublin and Cork again on behalf of the Irish Aviation Authority. Beingan island nation, it is essential that the most modern air transportationinfrastructure is in place.The new headquarters and workshop building for the Commissionersof Irish Lights includes facilities for the co-ordination and monitoringof all sea bound vessels around the coast of Ireland and the provisionand maintenance of marine aids to navigation.In 2001, Scott Tallon Walker was appointed as master planners andarchitects for the redevelopment of the existing regional airport at Lyddin Kent to the south east of London. The scheme remains a potentiallyviable project for future implementation. As part of the overall expansionof Dublin Airport, Scott Tallon Walker worked with private land owners,developers and the Dublin Airport Authority in development of a masterplan for the creation of a new airport terminal building, air side and landside freight handling facilities and related commercial development tothe west of the existing terminal complex, flanked to the north andsouth by the two parallel runways.Scott Tallon Walker were part of the team appointed by Alliance Texas,a Perot Company, in reviewing the development potential for “inlandports” at Shannon and Knock airports in Ireland, and Gdansk Airportin Poland. The consortium purchased 20 hectares of land abuttingthe runway at Knock Airport, and Scott Tallon Walker preparedinfrastructure and development Action Plans covering 10,000 sq.km foradoption by the Local Authority into its development plan for Mayo.Referee:Mr. Eugene McLernon, Aviation House, Hawkins Street, Dublin 2Tel: +353 1 6718655Email: eugene.mclernon@iaa.ie Air Traffic Control Tower - Dublin Airport, Ireland (2008-2009)64 Scott Tallon Walker Architects

  67. 67. Civic & CulturalScott Tallon Walker Architects have designed some of Ireland’s mostimportant civic and cultural buildings: from the National Theatre atthe Abbey, to the award winning Dublin City Council headquarters.The practice embraces and designs the broadest range of publicbuildings, including theatres, pavilions, monuments, civic offices,churches, stadia and community centres.We recognise the challenges associated with the design of civic andcultural buildings: the importance of issues such as transparency,accessibility, urban regeneration and the key role such projects takeas examplars in sustainability.We encourage and explore the shared relationship between Art andArchitecture. The practice has progressed a number of sculpture-ledpublic projects including two collaborations with the sculptor MichaelWarren: Tulach a’tSolais (The Mound of Light), a beautifully craftedmonument in a rural landscape; and a proposal to replace Nelson’sPillar in O’Connell Street, Dublin’s principal historic thoroughfare.Over the last 20 years, we have been responsible for themasterplanning of Dublin’s Gate Theatre buildings and have designeda series of building projects that encompass extensive works ofconservation, refurbishment and design enhancements. Each ofthese adaptive projects has been vital to the survival of the GateTheatre and to its continued artistic and commercial success.Referee:Marguerite Murphy, County Architect, Architects’s Department,P.O.

The hotelsin Dublin’s Financial Services Centre and Cork’s Lapps Quay bothrelate to their respective river frontages and have had a spin-offregenerative effect on their respective neighbourhoods. Everyscheme is based on sound and experience driven design principlesand is developed in close collaboration with the client to provide aunique bespoke solution.Whether a component of a larger commercial scheme designed toprovide active frontage and vibrant uses at street level, the renovationand fit out of a high street department store, or the commercial centreat the heart of a mixed use scheme, retail provides a key componentof a number of Scott Tallon Walker’s projects.Our Practice designed Marks & Spencer’s flagship store in Dublin’sGrafton Street. We were also engaged to renovate the formerSwitzer’s store for Brown Thomas, Ireland’s exclusive departmentstore. This project involved the conservation of facades, the creationof new shop fronts, and the rebuild of the three storey over doublebasement department store.The design of new BMW showrooms gave the practice theopportunity to develop its interest in light elegant structures andbeautifully crafted glazing systems, while showcasing the BMWproduct to its maximum advantage.The Point Village Shopping Centre integrates urban design, planningand architecture, providing a vibrant complex of offices, hotel,cinemas and shops in Dublin’s Docklands. The design ensures thatthe Point Village will become a destination in the City Centre, whetherto browse in naturally lit shopping malls, see a movie or simply hangout in the pavement cafes fronting onto Point Square.86 Scott Tallon Walker Architects86

  89. 89. Conservation & RestorationScott Tallon Walker Architects have advised Clients over manyyears in the appraisal of the benefits of refurbishment over newbuild or vice versa and also in comparisons of the merits of differentlevels of refurbishment, both in vacant and live occupied buildingenvironments.Through our understanding of buildings and their environments,we strive to work in a sensitive and cost effective manner withexisting building fabric to express the best aspects of the buildingsoriginal design, while upgrading materials, structures and buildingservices to respond to the clients requirements in the 21st Century.This response includes evaluation of fire safety and accessibilityrequirements to meet current Building Regulations and occupancystandards.We take on refurbishment from first principles, evaluating the existingsite and building condition, surveying existing structures and servicesand gathering original design documentation. Regeneration of abuilding for future use is a first principle of environmental sustainabilityand something we engage in with the Client from the outset.Refurbishment covers a wide set of skills that we have acquiredthrough time and design rigor. Many projects require sensitiveconservation of existing historic structures, interior design, masterplanning, consultant design team co-ordination and a wide rangeof soft skills to ease temporary re-locations of staff.In addition to new project refurbishments, we are often re-engagedto refurbish buildings we have originally designed. We are currentlyinvolved in several substantial regenerative projects, such asthe former award winning PJ Carroll’s factory in Dundalk, nowencompassed into the Dundalk Institute of Technology and theFAS National Training Agency buildings in Ballyfermot and Finglas,Dublin.Our experience includes the complete sensitive refurbishment oflisted buildings such as the Royal College of Physicians, and themixture of refurbishment and sensitive modern intervention as in theGate Theatre in Dublin and the Tyndall Institute in Cork.90 Scott Tallon Walker Architects

  93. 93. Industrial & Car ParkingWe constantly progress the idea of purposeful aesthetics in allbuilding types and scales. Industrial process buildings and theplaces people work should, we believe, have environments that areideally optimised for the intended industrial process and be upliftingplaces to work.Our solutions are often guided by the industrial production process.Indeed when The Irish Times relocated their printing operationsfrom D’Olier St in the centre of Dublin to a larger greenfield site onthe outskirts, we embraced the printing process engineering andintegrated the building design parallel to process design requirementsproviding optimum layout for equipment and operations.Through our in-house Sustainability Group we encourage progressivesustainable methods and design developments with reduced carbonfootprints. We incorporate natural day lighting into the core of ourdesigns and prioritise the integration of all services and BMS systemsto ensure minimal energy losses from building fabrics.The same wish to generate a positive outcome can be seen intworecent functional car parking structures at St. Vincent’s UniversityHospital and Blackrock Hospital, where each has become asignificant landscape feature on their sites. “The success of the project reflects the dedicated professionalism, expertise and skills of the team at Scott Tallon Walker and their outstanding input to all key areas for its duration. The team’s support and encouragement to this company at all stages was exceptional and invaluable” Michael Walsh, Project Manager, The Irish Times94 Scott Tallon Walker Architects

In addition, we have enabled Listed Buildings, as part oftheir conservation process, to evolve into event centres capable ofcompeting with purpose built facilities, including the creation of aconferencing centre in the Victorian home of The Royal College ofPhysicians of Ireland, the ongoing modernisation and expansionof The Gate Theatre, both in Dublin, the refurbishment of The AulaMaxima in the 1840’s Quadrangle in Galway University and theremodelling of both the Gaiety and Olympia Theatres in Dublin.In 1998, Scott Tallon Walker were commissioned by the IrishGovernment to prepare a master plan for the new national sportingcentre of excellence – Sports Campus Ireland, and to design thenew 80,000 spectator capacity National Stadium, capable ofaccommodating Gaelic, Rugby and Soccer, as well as track and fieldevents. The Campus is currently under development, but a decisionwas taken by the Government to provide Ireland’s InternationalStadium for Rugby and Soccer by rebuilding the world’s oldestinternational rugby stadium at Lansdowne Road. In 2004, ScottTallon Walker, with Populous, won the international competition forthe design and delivery of the new Aviva Stadium at LansdowneRoad, which was completed in April 2010.In 2010, we were appointed to design the new 13,000 sq.m.

  101. 101. Interior DesignScott Tallon Walker has extensive experience in providing qualityinterior design solutions for its clients. We have created the interiorsof many of our buildings, but also successfully work in modern andheritage buildings, to create spaces and interiors to suit the specificneeds and budgets of our clients.More innovative recent interior fit outs include the new stadium asLansdowne Road, Dublin, three Clarion hotels with conferencingand spa facilities, the new corporate offices for McCann FitzGeraldSolicitors, one of Ireland premier legal practices, the headquartersfor the Commissioners of Irish Lights, in Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin,from where all of Ireland’s waterways and lighthouses are controlled,supported and maintained to the new BMW showrooms for KeaneMotors in County Dublin.The success of our design solutions are based on the seamlessintegrations of the building, its architecture and character, with thedesign of the interiors. Whereas this can be more readily carriedout where Scott Tallon Walker are the designer of the building in thefirst instance, applying this discipline to either buildings designedby other architects or to existing structures, is a process that wehave successfully carried out. Examples include interiors for suchcompanies as Pfizer, Bank of New York, and Bank of Ireland toconverting the administrative headquarters for the Royal College ofPhysicians of Ireland in Dublin, which is a Listed Building of NationalImportance, into a conference centre.Our approach to fit out contracts commences with listening to theclient, visiting their existing facility, if such existing, and generating anunderstanding of their specific needs, aspirations and requirements.This process, which can include a charette type brainstormingsession, to include the various key personnel within the client’sorganisation, leads to the designers within Scott Tallon Walker havinga personal understanding of the brief. The team within Scott TallonWalker, which will be headed up by a director of the company, willinclude both interior designers and architectural staff, to ensure thatthe solutions being generated can be readily accommodated withinthe selected building or structure.Scott Tallon Walker is understandably proud of the broad spectrumof interiors created by its designers. With any new appointment,the skills and design flair from within the company will be tapped toensure that the delivered interior that not only properly responds tothe client’s brief but creates spaces that everyone will find satisfying,uplifting, comfortable and efficient.102 Scott Tallon Walker Architects
