In this the thirteenth year of the festival we are showcasing some of our new works completed in the last 12 months. Tours of George's Place in Dun Laoghaire town, 12 new rapid delivery highly energy efficient social housing units, will inform you of the creation of a new city street and the potential to deliver high quality design under rapid build conditions. A new piece of design sited within the existing County Hall building aimed at enhancing local democracy is also open for tours. Come in and see the new public waiting and service interaction spaces, with its light open design incorporating private breakout meeting spaces alongside open glazed links to the new bright open Council Chambers. Enjoy a walk through the historic grounds of Fernhill and receive a guided tour to understand the work done to date and future plans to upgrade the site to a regional park level.
