New Garda Area Headquarters designed to strict operational requirements while achieving a sense of civic presence
Floor Area 430 m² (4,628 ft²)
Garda Station Schull, Co. Cork
The design of this project emphasises supervision throughout the building and allows for the control of all functions of the building from a central reception, while allowing rapid access to key areas if needed.
The central node on the plan, the double-height reception area welcomes visitors and is decorated with locally commissioned artwork.
The crisp modern image of the station gives a sense of civic pride in a building of modest scale.
