"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.

Congratulations to the winner Sean Mahon, to Matthew Webb (second place), and to Kate Rushe and Orla O’Donnell (joint highly commended)!

Education Minister Richard Bruton recently officiated at the sod turning of the new Scott Tallon Walker Architects designed Trinity Business School on Pearse Street.

Scott Tallon Walker Architects are delighted that on September 20th 2016 Fortress Spike Island celebrated its official opening by the Mayor of Cork Cllr. Seamus McGrath, following the completion of extensive renovation works.

Based on the Phase 1 of our 2011 Masterplan, the completed 6 million Euro Phase 1 has been co-funded by Cork County Council and Failte Ireland, turning the island into one of Ireland’s premier tourist destinations.

Regular ferry services from Cobh take visitors on a short ferry ride to the island, where visitors can see the 1850’s Punishment block, the 1985 cells and riot exhibition, the artillery gun park and Irelands largest harbour defence guns, while also enjoying the stunning views of Cork Harbour and Cobh.

The follow on phases of the €40 million master plan envisaged considerable upgrades, including the building of a state of the art museum covering the military and transportation history of Spike Island, and national aquarium and oceanography centre within the fort. External to the fort it is hoped to reopen the former village as self catering, bed and breakfast and glamping accommodation, with a visitor and accommodation retail hub to support overnight stays.

Scott Tallon Walker Architects are delighted that Keeper's House and Lodge has been shortlisted in this year’s World Architecture Festival Awards.

Elevated above a river meander, the site of Keeper House is bounded within a Special Area of Conservation encompassing magnificent mature trees. A Neolithic ring fort to the north east, bears witness to the providence of the land. Views of distant mountains emerge through the trees to the east and south.

The client sought a contemporary design approach to capture the unique characteristics of the site, to include a house and a separate lodge with its own aspect and privacy. The brief proposed a low energy design, maximising visibility, connectivity and enjoyment of the natural habitat as project criteria.

The scheme is set out around a three sided walled garden, gathering vehicles in a sheltered courtyard. The south wall shifts in plane to form a shared plantroom, while also creating privacy between each dwelling. Distant views are screened, to be later revealed when entering the main social space of each house.

Common design elements are applied with subtle variation to each dwelling. Higher ceiling to social spaces, creates a dominant roof plane that floats over courtyard walls to announce entry.

The main house faces south and east, with a central kitchen core that divides the plan into entrance hallway, dining area, study and living space. The lodge faces west; a distilled version of the main house plan.









Internally, the visual dominance of tree foliage through floor to ceiling glass gives seasonal definition. Bedrooms are arranged adjacent to the line of the courtyard wall, each room having direct garden access, with an external fern garden, outside shower and hot tub off the master en-suite.

To the south, the connecting wall is planted with trained fruit trees, and forms a backdrop to a pathway which includes viewing platforms, and the river bank below, further harmonising landscape, architecture and occupant.
