Currach Workshop


Location: Cork City Centre

Status: Design proposal

Located on Sullivan's Quay in Cork City, the brief was to design a boat building school with workshops, classrooms, business incubator units, a gallery and exhibition spaces for ‘Meitheal Mara’ - a traditional boat building organisation.

The design proposal was to form an external space around which the buildings would stand and house the various aspects of the brief. The courtyard had a dual function, both as a central organising space, and an external workshop - visible from all areas of the building and to the passing public, putting on shows and celebrating the craft and workmanship.
