Planning submitted for New Gate Arts & Culture Centre

Áras Uí Chonghaile shortlisted for the AJ Retrofit Awards 2021 for best ‘Cultural and Religious Building under £5million’. The retrofit transforms the building into a unified connected community facility with cultural, private and civic spaces including a bilingual museum, café, library, office, conference, learning and exhibition spaces. The building has a lightness evident from the open plan spaces, enhanced by double height spaces carved into the existing building plan, creating a stacked lightwell that brings natural light and a visual connectivity across the three floors.
