 Best Public Building - Ballyroan Library

Best Public Building

Receiving their Irish Architecture Award for Best Public Building from RIAI President Ms. Michelle Fagan and Ruairí Quinn TD, Minister for Education and Skills TD were Box Architecture

Best Public Building Award


ARCHITECTS: Box Architecture
CLIENT: South Dublin County Council Libraries


Jury Citation:
The best new libraries balance interaction and reflection, the book and the computer. Arranged around a high, colonnaded street, a satisfying sequence of flexible spaces offers degrees of enclosure, volume and view to facilitate differing dynamics of the individual and the group. Choice is reinforced by the quality of materials and detailing both contributing to the modest but still decidedly civic character of the library.


Highly Commended in this category is the Operations Centre at Ballyogan
