Fergal McGirl - Conservation architect dublin

larian studios, new bride street, dublin


We were engaged by DMOD Architects in 2020 to provide conservation input from inception to completion to an extension and alterations of Larian Studios at the intersection of New Bride Street and Long Lane, a protected structure and former boy’s school, (built c.1820).

Externally the architectural design is expressed as contemporary additions taking cues from the existing building in terms of materials (a complementary stone cladding) and massing (creating a progressive set of building volumes in the streetscapes). Internally the contrast between the modern extension structure and the former school building create a dynamic atmosphere and setting that supported the clients brief  as game developers.
