Decentralised Offices, Mullingar

Designed as headquarters for the Department of Education and Science on a prominent brownfield site outside Mullingar, the four storey block offers well-tempered office environments with cross views through a series of dramatic and inter-related glazed courtyards and lightwells. 

The building form is broken open at ground floor, affording access into courtyards; a generous bridge across the River Brosna signals the entrance from the road - nature literally extends into the building from the surrounding parkland. The building is clad in a taut skin of flush glass, aluminium & stone panels.
