Whispering House Designed by Coady Architects Shortlisted for RIAI Public Choice Award 2020

Lawlor Burns & Associates are delighted to see that Whispering House, a central hub designed by Coady Architects for St. Columba’s College has been shortlisted for the RIAI Public Choice Award 2020, We provided our full quantity surveying services on the project.

The project delivered by Mythen Construction created a vibrant central hub for the students, staff and visitors of St. Columba’s College. The building includes two distinct elements, a glazed pavilion set within the historic walled garden, reflective of glasshouses that had originally been on the site and a two-story block with a servery on first floor with a lower entrance, toilets and boiler house below.

The nature of the works involved the deconstruction and reinstatement of part of the historic stone garden wall. The building forms part of the informal circulation routes inter weaving between and through buildings on the campus. The entrance at lower level leads to the accommodation stairs rising to the social space on first floor which in turn adjoins the south facing garden pavilion providing a large interconnected social space for both informal and formal events.

The development has been “transformative” for the college and has hosted a number of events since its completion, including its official opening when it was opened by the Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.

We wish the best of luck to Coady Architects in the awards.
