Plus Architecture were commissioned by Blackstone to undertake upgrade works for the Bloodstone Building in Dublin’s Docklands.
The existing entrance to the Bloodstone Building lacks a sense of presence at street level. It is a low single storey anonymous structure which appears out of scale in the 8 storey facade to BloodStoney Road. The concept for the canopy design is to create a sense of presence with an entrance canopy structure that incorporates colour, height, lighting and bespoke branding.
We worked closely with a multi-disciplinary team from Arup Consultants, including facade, structure and lighting specialists to ensure that the detailing and finished structure meet the aspirations of the design concept.
