This is the last and most successful of the local government buildings built in Ireland over the last decade.

An internal plaza that delights in shade and light unites the six departmental buildings separated by sheltered, lushly planted outdoor courtyards. A glazed skin wraps the whole building, providing shelter from the wind so that windows opening into it admit tempered air.

Together, these strategies help to drive a natural ventilation scheme that is very carefully considered in what is ultimately a relatively deep plan building.
