West Cork Arts Centre
Location: Cork, Ireland
Date: Competition 2008
This project aims to create an iconic, functional and beautiful building which provides a place for the development, practice, encounter and promotion of culture and the arts – a place whose features and resources are optimal for this purpose, in the centre of Skibbereen and serving the people of West Cork, Ireland and the world.
The design theme explores the juxtaposition of the different volumes which form the body of the building and its relationship with its context, simultaneously exploring the internal subdivision of these volumes to create a spatial configuration which is both apparently complex and easy to comprehend and move around.
