  5. 5. Commercial Offices“It was very important to us in embarking on this project that we would end up with not just a landmark building but also one which would be practicalin terms of its functionality and design (including interior fitout design) and built to the highest standards. All of this was achieved to everyone’ssatisfaction within a very tight timeframe and, most importantly within budget”- Tom O’Connor, A&L Goodbody

  10. 10. Citi Commercial OfficesClient CitiArea 34,744m2This headquarters office building was designed for Citi toaccommodate the expanding front office and global supportoperations of the company. The design aim was to create a brightmodern working environment, achieved by arranging the floor platesaround two full-height, internal landscaped atria thereby maximisingnatural daylight to all areas.The design of the atria spaces forms a major internal focal pointwithin the building. The main entrance and reception to the buildingare located through the main atrium with both atria linked horizontallyat ground floor level and both containing vertical circulation via liftsand stairs. The sense of movement and transparency within thespace is achieved by glazed-clad lift shafts, open staircases andinterconnecting bridges at each floor level.The main entrance is defined externally by a splayed full heightplanar glazed wall to the main atrium which creates a major externalcivic space.12 Scott Tallon Walker Architects
  11. 11. Citi Innovation Lab Commercial OfficesClient CitiArea 750m2Citi required a fitout of the an existing ground floor office space tohouse a newly launched department within the Citi group called the‘Citi Innovation Lab’. The public face of this department is vital toits function and therefore the fitout required attention to detail andefficient implementation of the global design strategy for the branch.The project involved the implementation and launch of the new ‘CitiInnovation Lab’ into the existing Dublin Citi Head Office.

  12. 12. Stockyard Office Development Commercial OfficesClient Crosbie PropertyArea 3,500m2The plan was based on a simple design concept of a main circulationarea running across the building in an east west direction from onestair core to the other. If modular offices are to be incorporated thenthey will run along the northern and southern facades with openplan in the middle of the floor plates. On the fourth and fifth floorsthe circulation route becomes smaller as does the office spaceprovided with the omission of floor space to the rear (north) of thebuilding. The sixth floor is further reduced as a result of the set backat this level. Vertical circulation is provided via two staircores, oneon each gable wall.The north elevation is stepped by means of a terrace at fourth floorlevel. This reduces massing toward the residential units on AbercornRoad and establishes a contextual empathy with the two storeyhouses. The curved outline of fifth and sixth floor office space partlycantilevers over the fourth floor terrace.14 Scott Tallon Walker Architects
