Project description:

The project of new Library/Arts/Culture/Community complex in Ireland (Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown) is the result of an RIAI design competition, which was won by Carr Cotter Naessens Architects.

Glassbel supplied energy efficient insulated glass units with an impressive dimensions: up to 5.7 m. The structural glazing and extra clear glass creates the sense of delicacy and weightless appearance of the museum, giving visitors the opportunity to enjoy an eye-catching view area of Dublin Harbour.

The outside area at Moran Park has been landscaped to include a new water feature and gardens, which can host events.

Additional architectural details of DLRC are glass fins with Sefar gold mesh (and bevelled edge, which became the unique element of glazing).

"This is by far the most significant public infrastructure development in Dún Laoghaire for over 100 years", said the Cathaoirleach, Councillor Bailey, adding, "it will make a major contribution to the regeneration of the town and to the country"
