Phoenix Care Centre Wins Major Award
The new award winning Phoenix Care Centre
Wednesday 10th July, 2013 - The new Phoenix Care Centre has picked up the Award for Best Health Building at this years Irish Architectue Awards. This is a great for the HSE, the design team, Moloney O' Beirne and the GDA and is recognition for all of the work that went into making this historic new building a reality.
The jury citation on the building said "A difficult, restrictive brief requiring the generation of a separated but believable interior world while responding to the gritty reality of the site is resolved in a satisfyingly viable form. The internal shared spaces are refreshingly relaxed and non-institutional and the strong combination of stock brick and robust forming of opes seems to match its setting."
Receiving their Irish Architecture Award for Best Health from RIAI President Ms. Michelle Fagan and Ruairí Quinn TD, Minister for Education and Skills TD are architects Moloney O’Beirne Architects, Derek Dockrell (HSE), and Simon Mannion (GDA).
