91-93 Merrion Square

Construction work has commenced on the redevelopment of three interconnecting Georgian Buildings on the west side of Merrion Square. These buildings , which are some of the earliest houses to be built on Merrion Square, have been remodeled over the centuries and have lost much of the original layout and historic detail. The original houses were converted to offices in the 20th century  and most recently have been used as government offices. The current works will undo some of the historic damage  and provide a more sympathetic adaptation of the buildings for continued commercial use.

1916 Centenary Chapel

Mahoney Architecture prepared a design for the 1916 Centenary Chapel at Glasnevin Cemetery. The Chapel is located adjacent to a mass grave where military and civilian victims of the 1916 Rising are buried. The Chapel will cater for cremation funeral services. The building features a greta stone  colonnade that forms a back drop to the 1916 mass grave and a series of  courts which sequence the movement of mourners  through the chapel. Mourners initially gather in an open court that leads to the main foyer and from there enter the chapel through a roofed garden. The catafalque is located under a top-lit cylindrical dais around which the mourners are seated for the final ceremony. The building is constructed from stone clad pillars and walls which support a laminated timber beamed roof. Linen is used to diffuse light from glazed sections of the roof to create a muted soft light within the chapel. 02

Kilmacthomas Workhouse Planning

Mahoney Architecture have recently secured planning permission for Phase 1 of the Kilmacthomas Workhouse redevelopment. The original workhouse buildings were built during the Great Famine and operated up to 1919. This planning permission is an important milestone in the project  and will provide high quality studio workspaces for a group of artists and craftspeople who have operated from Kilmacthomas for a number of years. The new development utilises the dramatic interior volumes of the existing building and retains the character and existing building through light touch refurbishment. It is hoped that construction works will progress later this year.
