The Dun Laoghaire Library Project in Dublin is quite an impressive structure by Cork based architects Carr, Cotter & Naessens Architects.
The building makes a natural connection between the town and the Harbour. Clad in Granite the huge window frames have terrific views out over the sea. The ground floor windows feature Architectural Bronze frames, ideally suited to the marine environment and were manufactured locally by Gunn Lennon Fabrications (an approved Secco Sistemi fabricator).
The four-storey structure was built into the existing slope creating two ground floor areas and a pair of quieter upper levels, designed to offer a mixture of both social and intimate spaces.
The triple glazed lift and slide doors have a very high performance, Class 8A for Watertightness and up to 43dB for acoustic performance. The flush cill with integrated water drainage makes access easy for all.
