Whitaker Court, Dublin

Following the successful delivery of Deloitte’s main centre in Dublin, Reddy A+U have been commissioned to design a collaborative space for Deloitte’s Blockchain Technology team of up to 72 staff. The brief was to create a space that would inspire staff and clients alike to develop new ideas and ground-breaking technologies.

The design team worked on the spatial theme of “posh garage”, representing new approaches, tinkering with ideas and pushing the boundaries. this comes through in the fitout illustrated by the innovative use and reuse of materials and elements in disruptive ways.

The plan promotes various types of working: focused and collaborative, refuge, team, enclave and community working. Spaces are provided for focused individual work in the open plan space, team-based tasks, individual concentrated or confidential tasks, small huddles of 2-3 people in quieter corners, quiet group sessions of up to 6 people, group training, presentations and press events for up 40 people, or 80 with the “garage doors” open. Multifunctional communal spaces allow for informal collaboration, hot-desking, knowledge sharing and social interaction.

There is a strong focus on sustainability with many of the materials salvaged or reclaimed. The reception desk is made of two steel beams salvaged from the nearby historical Boland’s Mill building.

An artwork package celebrates inventions that were first considered unthinkable but in time changed the world.
