Text description provided by the architects. Located at the heart of the NUIG Campus, the new Hardiman Research Building houses next-generation graduate, post-graduate, and faculty library space dedicated to academic research. NUIG’s vision for the building aspired to facilitate knowledge generation and to foster collaboration in a flexible space dedicated for research. The heart of the building features two “stackless” reading rooms, designed and furnished to enable individual and collaborative scholarship.

The new library faces the historic entrance to the University, along the main park space on campus, and is connected to the existing campus library, the James Hardimann Library, by a new shared lobby, which acts as the new front door for the entire library complex. Situated at this critical location, the new library responds to multiple pedestrian approaches and establishes a new face for the University.
