An office fit out for the international consultancy EY in Dublin, following earlier offices for the same client in Cork. The project accommodates up to 1,100 people and over 700 work stations.
Floor area: 12,980 m²
Designed in collaboration with Stride Treglown, the project consolidates EY’s 1,100 staff into one building by expanding, reorganising and upgrading the staff facilities and technologies to encourage a new way of working.
Hierarchical desking and cellular offices were replaced with open plan flexible working while maintaining a team structure. The staff facilities, notably the restaurant, were enlarged and improved, and the whole office brought up to a modern standard.
The space has been used as efficiently as possible, but with every effort made to minimise any feeling of enclosure. Acoustics are designed to ensure the open nature of the office is balanced with enclosed meeting rooms.
