1989 – Tourism Office, Limerick

Architect: Murray O’Laoire Architects



The tourist office is a modern structure evoking a nautical image, with a light elegant suspended structure and a transparent building, which allows visual contact with the river. Over half of the footprint of the building is openspace covered by transparent canopies. In recent years, the light structure has been defaced and made visually heavy by the addition of large signage boards. The building won the RIAI Gold Medal, which is the premier award for a building in Ireland.
