This recently completed project for Kennedy Wilson consists of a redevelopment of four number existing Georgian houses up to 5 storeys and a new building up to 8 storeys high.
Axiseng was commissioned by the client to deliver the MEP design of this prestigious development on a constrained site in the city centre.
There was a need to refurbish and fully fit out as office buildings historically significant protected building in the centre of Dublin City Centre. The building numbers 19, 20, 21 & 22 Kildare Street will be fully developed and include the following accommodation spaces: CAT A office areas, reception and atrium, lifts, lobbies and staircases, tea stations, storerooms and other ancillary spaces. A car park and a bicycle storage with changing areas will be also provided.
A new pedestrian entrance from Kildare Street to the internal courtyard of the new built office block was created at ground floor level of No. 20 Kildare Street. The pedestrian entrance zone was fully fitted out as part of the new build atrium installation which leads to a new multi-storey office building.
The building is now certified for WiredScore Platinum and BER of A3 was achieved. The project is also expecting to achieve LEED v4 Gold and WELL Gold certification soon.
A significant challenge of the project is working within the protected buildings: to align with the conservation requirements while make them fit for purpose as offices.
The building site itself was also highly constrained and its location required all the land to be developed to make the best use of the space available. By placing most of the plant in the basement and roof, letting area was maximised and noise minimised.
