Restoration and Landscaping of the Viking Triangle, Waterford City. 

Commended - RIAI Irish Architecture Awards 2014. 

The Viking Triangle is one of the oldest and most significant urban quarters in the country. In this project, the highest quality materials and street fittings are used to make a series of spaces that reflect the civic and historical importance of the area. The overall approach was to repave the streets in granite and to make the surrounds of the Cathedral in Irish blue limestone, with large inset areas of Ballylusk gravel. Though specific in context, place and materials, the project is characterised by a positive uncertainty with regard to use. Its emptiness assumes change, across a season or a century.
