Work progressing on site at Western Apex at South Presentation Convent, Cork

Construction is ongoing at the Western Apex site at the South Presentation Convent, Douglas Street, Cork.

 

The Western Apex Building is a third level education building which is currently under construction in Cork City. The design team consists of Jack Coughlan Architects,  Cahalan Lynch Associates (Quantity Surveyors), Horgan Lynch Consulting Engineers, Martin Buckley Associates (Mechanical and Electrical), and Bernard Seaymour Associates (Landscape Design). The project is funded by South Presentation Centre Ltd. and being constructed by P.J. Hegarty and Sons Ltd. Building Contractors.

 

Located on the western wedge of the complex, the new building is set back from the street forming a new landscape to the existing street. The main entrance is distinguished by a cut in the north western corner. Beyond the entrance foyer is a three storey atrium void topped by clearstorey glazing. At this level a canteen and two flexible lecture spaces are backed by glazing which exits to an internal shared courtyard. The courtyard is part of a new landscape  that leads through the Nano Nagle Place complex. A stair rises up the void to studio spaces on the two floors above. The open plan accommodation arranged around the atrium void aims to encourage an intergenerational experience and sharing of knowledge across the building. The atrium is also located to maximise natural daylighting and encourage the use of natural ventilation strategies.
