Robin Lee Architecture, in association with Arthur Gibney and Partners, has completed Wexford County Council Headquarters in Ireland. The project won in an international competition organised by the RIAI in 2006, and is the first building to be completed since Lee’s practice Nord LLP was renamed Robin Lee Architecture in April 2011. The building sits on a sloping site on the outer fringes of Wexford town, in South East Ireland, with lovely views of the River Slaney Estuary and the Blackstairs Mountains. It brings together the services and departments of Wexford County Council that, until now, have been housed separately within the center of the town. The new headquarters gives identity to the collective endeavor of the council as a unified organization, while giving individual expression to the separate departments and their unique activities. The accommodation is laid out as a series of six discrete blocks; each block houses key services and individual departments. The blocks are gathered around a large central space, a ‘civic forum’, which gives access to all of the council facilities.
