Civic Projects

Hollyhill Library
City Architects Department

Constructed in 2015 the new library forms part of the ongoing regeneration of the Knocknaheeny area, and is located within the grounds of the Terence MacSwiney Community College, forming a new civic space at the crossroads of Harbour View Road, Courtown Drive and the proposed new road linking the Hollyhill town centre to the city centre via Baker’s Road and Cathedral Road.

New Civic Offices
Ahrends Burton Koralek Architects

The award winning New Civic Offices consists of some 9,200m2 of naturally ventilated office accommodation and support facilities for the City Council, extending the existing quayside City Hall to the rear. A central civic hall links the two volumes and adds a new urban space to the City.

Tory Top Road Branch Library
City Architects Department

A New Branch Library designed by City Architects, was constructed in 2004 at Tory Top Road, Ballyphehane, Cork, creating generous, naturally lit spaces around a central reception, a multi-purpose area with its own access for use in the evenings and an enclosed garden incorporating renewable energy in the form of a ground source heat pump.
