Hanover Reach, Hanover Quay, Dublin 2
Office & Canteen Fit-Out / 2,550sqm
The commission entails architectural and interior design services for the fit out of 1,350sqm of general office and 1,200sqm of canteen and associated kitchen. The canteen offers a full catering facility with all food preparation completed on site. The canteen / kitchen facility required planning approval, fire and disability access certificates.
The brief requires the canteen area to double as an assembly space capable of accommodating presentations by the CEO and senior management. The attendant acoustic considerations have formed a key element of the design response. The exposed soffit is lined with sound absorption board. Floating plasterboard ceilings and floor patterns define the primary seating clusters. 3 no shaped seating pods provide for more intimate groupings. Confident use of colour creates an energy and vibrancy throughout.
