Offices for the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts, Cherrywood, Co. Dublin
Cantrell & Crowley Architects were engaged as the designers as part of a bid by ECMWF to host their EU offices in Dublin.
The brief was to create an office which has an emphasis on sustainability whilst also a modern, design-focused, flexible and collaborative workspace suitable for a large office.
The space includes a range of meeting rooms and offices such as open plan informal meeting areas, small and large enclosed meeting rooms, private offices and also large flexible training/boardrooms.
The workspace is an open plan layout with break out seating situated close to groupings of desks to allow for informal collaboration. There is also a large canteen which encourages staff to use for all types of collaboration through the day.
Our design was shortlisted, however a final decision was made to relocate the offices to Bonn, Germany.
