Reddy Architecture + Urbanism has won

The ‘Project of the Year: Small Office over 500,000’ award at the Fit Out Awards 2017, and ‘Building of the Year: Small Office Project 2017’ award at the Building and Architect of the Year Awards 2017. Congratulations to our project team.

From the citation: “...very strong submission, an example of high quality fit out design, creating an individual and unique sense of place.”

The project provides a collaborative space to in-spire staff and clients alike to develop new ideas and  ground-breaking technologies. The layout promotes various types of working: focused and collaborative, refuge, team, enclave and community working. There is a strong focus on sustain-ability with many of the materials salvaged or reclaimed.

Reddy Architecture + Urbanism has won the ‘Project of the Year: Healthcare’ category at the Fit Out Awards 2017. Congratulations to our de-sign team, which brought together our expertise in healthcare and interior design.

Ferndene, an addition to an existing nursing home, comprises 29 bedrooms and new dining and lounge areas. It creates the ambience of home rather than an institution, with natural colours, good daylight and extensive views to the outside.

Our client’s comment:  “Reddy Architecture... created a superb scheme for our nursing home... contemporary and luxurious...
a scheme that is unique when benchmarked against other nursing home and healthcare facilities in Ireland.”

Reddy Architecture + Urbanism’s residential scheme for the proposed new ‘HQ’ development at Horgan’s Quay in Cork city centre has been lodged for planning permission.

The €160 million ‘HQ’ development will provide 237 apartments, a 136-bed hotel, 37,000 of offices, new retail, restaurant and leisure uses and 4,000 m² of new public space adjoining the river Lee and forming a new approach to the city’s main railway station.

This is a major opportunity for Cork city and the North Docks area, a significant new urban quarter offering a high quality living and working environment built around a series of public plazas.

Reddy Architecture +Urbanism developed the design of the 11 storey apartment scheme along-side Wilson Architecture (hotel, retail and residential elements) and O’Mahoney Pike Architects (master planning and offices) in a team lead by Clarendon Properties and BAM Ireland.

A decision on the planning application is due in Spring 2018.

Reddy Architecture + Urbanism’s proposals for the refurbishment, extension and redevelopment of the Metropole Hotel in Cork have been lodged with Cork City Council for planning permission.

The 50 million project will bring the hotel to ‘4 star plus’ standard, with the addition of 140 bed-rooms and 43 suites to the 112 existing rooms, a function room and terrace at roof level, a garden court at lobby level and shop units to both the McCurtain Street and St.Patrick’s Quay frontages. A complementary hotel, the M Hotel, will be built alongside the Metropole and linked to it by glass bridges at roof and intermediate levels. Upon completion, the hotel complex, with 400 rooms and a floor area of more than 22,000 m², will be the largest hotel complex in Cork.

The project is headed by Sean Kearns of Reddy Architecture + Urbanism’s Cork office.

We are very pleased to have received from An Bord Pleanala planning permission for phases 1 and 2 of our student housing scheme at University College Dublin’s Belfield Campus. This is the first such permission to be granted nationally under the government’s new Strategic Housing Development (SHD) process, designed to accelerate delivery of large-scale strategic housing schemes.

The development will ultimately provide 3,000 bedspaces in seven buildings of between five and ten storeys arranged around courtyards and linked by pedestrian walkways integrating the new buildings with the existing residences and academic buildings on campus. Activity hubs are located at key nodes, providing amenity and study space for residents and creating a living campus community.

The project is due to start in early 2018 with the first phase due for completion in early 2020.

January 2018

Our 400-bed New Mill student housing development, located in in Mill Street in Dublin’s historical Liberties area, received its first residents last September and is already making a positive impact in this formerly neglected area centred on the public space of Newmarket.

One of several planned developments designed by Reddy Architecture + Urbanism in or around Newmarket and the first of these to open, New Mill is already contributing to the rejuvenation of the area and to Newmarket as a lively public space. Other developments designed by Reddy Architecture + Urbanism will add apartment, office, hotel, retail and market uses, enhancing the area in economic and social terms.
