2014 Harcourt Road is a proposal to deliver Grade A, sustainable commercial offices with a strong identity and presence on Harcourt Road that will enhance the public realm. The proposal involves the demolition of the existing building and the construction of a new 7 storey office building which reinforces the established building line on Harcourt Road, while creating a strong identity that will form a landmark on the street.
The public realm on Harcourt Road will be greatly enhanced by raising the first floor to a height of 6.15M, setting back the entrance to create a generous 5.35M high covered external space. The 6 storey over ground floor office building is slim, elegant and highly glazed. The principle materials are natural anodized aluminium and glass.
The slender proportions are accentuated by vertical fins which will catch the early morning and late evening light and add crispness and sparkle to the elevation. The predominantly northern orientation of the building to the street means the transparency of the glazed elevation can be exploited to the full. The building is designed with excellent sustainable credentials to LEED Core & Shell standards.
The complex of three office buildings on Baggot Street are a Dublin Landmark recognised, as much for their transition from Georgian Dublin to higher development, as for their international flair.
Designed by Ronnie Tallon of Scott Tallon Walker Architects, the high-end corporate headquarters were constructed in two phases during the 1960s and 1970s.
Their redevelopment provides ultra modern buildings with flexible, Grade A office accommodation, that are energy efficient and have the highest sustainability credentials.
The project is on target to achieve WELL Building Standard Compliance and the design goal of LEED v4 Platinum Rating for the building Core & Shell works.
Blocks 2 & 3, fronting onto Baggot Street have reached Practical Completion stage and are currently being fitted out for occupation.
The larger Block 1 building is substantially complete and fit is due to commence shortly.
On completion development will provide 21,843 sq.m or 235,120 sq .ft. of total net lettable accommodation.
Full planning permission was obtained from South Dublin County Council in early 2016 and the Tender Process is in the evaluation stage with a contract award expected shortly.
This is a new-build, 100-bed residential healthcare unit for Peamount Healthcare on their existing Campus in Newcastle, South County Dublin. It is approximately 6,700 sq.m over two floors, arranged as two interlocking squares with private courtyards.
This building is the first phase of a Masterplan developed by Scott Tallon Walker Architects as part of Peamount Healthcare’s five year strategy to be an international leader in delivering and promoting rehabilitation and continuing care services.
Brewery Quarter Student Accommodation has recently received a notification of decision to grant permission and is expected to commence construction in mid 2017.
The site is located between South Main Street and a turn in the south channel of the River Lee where a new pedestrian bridge and street, Lamley’s Lane, will form a new east west route linking the University to the city centre.
This 413 Bedroom Student Accommodation development is part of a wider mixed use urban regeneration project, including a new events centre, on the former Beamish and Crawford Brewery site in the historic medieval core of Cork city.
Scott Tallon Walker Architects are delighted to be associated with the RIAI in the launch of the “RIAI Scott Tallon Walker Student Excellence Award” (the former RIAI Travelling Scholarship student award) in memory of Scott Tallon Walker Architects’ three founding partners, Dr. Michael Scott, Dr. Ronald Tallon and Robin Walker.
"The award aims to promote the study of contemporary architecture, encourage and foster architectural excellence among the student
body, encourage and facilitate communications between the schools and provide a basis for growing awareness of the architecture in society through exhibitions and publications supported by the RIAI".
Scott Tallon Walker fully supports the RIAI’s overall aims for the Travelling Scholarship competition and has donated €5,000 as a total annual prize fund. The submissions for this award formed part of an exhibition at the RIAI Annual Conference on the 25th and 26th of November 2016.
The competition was open to final year architecture students in the Island of Ireland. Entrants submitted an A1 collage of hand-drawn sketches, concept ideas, technical investigations, final design solutions, 3-D representations, and photographs of models illustrating their final year work.
