Dún Laoghaire–Rathdown located in Dublin, is a county in Ireland. The project built in 2018, and designed by DLRCOCO Architect’s department, contemplated a new public space for the delivery of important council services and the modernization of the council building. As a requirement, they wanted to create a sense of vibrancy and openness, and also natural light and ventilation.
To achieve this, they chose the VELUX Modular Skylights system, which allowed both, light and ventilation. Another reason to opt for it was that this was the only product capable of bringing natural light in such a large space.
