Carlow Arts Centre
Darmody Architects were the sole Irish Architects practice to be selected from a list of 130 practices in a competition to design a new Arts Centre for Carlow Town. The brief was to design a centre of contemporary arts which included three significant exhibition spaces, artist studios, a 200 seat auditorium and an information centre together with a cafe & restaurant. The solution involved the creation of a singular glazed building volume which would articulate the uses within.
