Casino at Marino

January 21st, 2010

We love this local gem. We visit regularly and bring visitors there all the time. Located in Marino it is 5 minutes from our office. The Casino at Marino was designed by Sir William Chambers in 1775 for James Caulfeild the first Earl of Charlemont. It is an exceptional example of Neo-classical architecture and one which delighted Valerio Olgati when we visited it with him in 2008.

Open House

September 29th, 2009

Donal Hickey Architects will be showing 1 Nuns’ Lane at this years OPEN HOUSE. Last year there were nearly 200 visitors who were given a half hour talk and shown around the house and office.
Ireland’s largest architectural event Open House Dublin returns from 8 to 11 October with a special focus on ‘Dublin’s Architecture – The New Generation’. The programme will feature a cross-section of Dublin’s most innovative designs – from the city’s newest urban quarters at Heuston Gate and in the Docklands to pioneer schemes that offer exemplary ways of living and working in the city and cleverly configured private residences and extensions. Content will be drawn from a wide range of building types including inventive community centres that creatively respond to local needs, award-winning schools providing a stimulating learning environment, and private residences that demonstrate thought and leadership on behalf of client and architect. Energy-efficiency, future-proofing and overall sustainability will be themes that run through all of these ‘new generation’ buildings and guided tours by architects and sustainability experts will explore the inherent innovation of these schemes. The programme will also provide a platform for the work of the ‘new generation of architects’, young architects and smaller practices who are beginning to make their mark through original projects and competitions.
