The RIAI announced the winners of the Irish Architecture Awards on 18th June at Dublin City Council, Wood Quay.
The RIAI Irish Architecture Awards are in their 26th year and the main focus in the Institutes remit campaign to communicate to the public the value that contemporary architecture makes to society. The awards coincide with Ireland’s Year of Design, ID2015 of which the RIAI is a key partner.
There were 120 building projects entered for this year’s awards. The jury selected 17 Award Winners, 11 Highly Commended and 14 Commended Awards, which were all presented to the architects at a ceremony in Wood Quay, Dublin City Council offices.
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.
