Gallery Quay

  • Location: South Docklands
  • Architect: HKR Architects
  • Completed: 2005

Gallery Quay provides 300 apartments in a diverse mix of one, two and three bed units, including duplex family units and social housing. These are arranged around two private courtyards and form a new public street at Grand Canal Dock and Pearse Street/ Macken Street, Dublin 2.

Gallery Quay also includes retail units and a cafe. This is a landmark building that has been designed to take full advantage of the excellent dockside views with clean, uncluttered modern lines and large generous areas of glazing. The bright and spacious apartments are entered from the street through double height entrance halls. These entry halls also allow access to the central private landscaped courtyard.

The external envelope of the building is composed of a combination of polished reconstituted stone, pre-finished render composite panels and aluminium/timber windows, with patio doors to the balconies. Western red cedar cladding has been used at penthouse level and in detailing of balconies and screens and has been selected to compliment the simplicity and clarity of the architecture and other materials. The principal residential blocks also contain roof gardens which afford wonderful views across the city as well as providing enhanced private open space, a very rare commodity in such an urban inner city location.
