02 Building

  • Location: North Docklands
  • Architect: Burke Kennedy Doyle
  • Completed: 2005

O2 expanded over the last few years. Their Dublin Headquarters were spread over two Offices around the Baggot Street area. It was decided that the time had come to move into a building more appropriate to their needs.

This striking building forms the centrepiece of the regeneration of Sir John Rogerson Quay and provides office accommodation centred on an atrium and a courtyard. Built on the site of a long vanished marine school, the E-shaped design takes the relationship with surrounding buildings and the historic school into account with its symmetrical and stepped aspect. The front elevation is controlled by the expressive vertical structural columns and the finish of granite, white enamel steel and glass contributes to a respectful and confident maritime feel.

The large open plan floorplate is bright and airy with beautiful views of the river Liffey to the front. The staff canteen at the centre of the building is the full height of the building and has a large glazed wall overlooking an internal garden.
