A' Design Award and Competition is pleased to announce that the project "Architecture Factory" by Marc O Riain has been granted the prestigious Platinum A' Design Award in Interior Space and Exhibition Design Category.

Winner Design: Architecture Factory
Marc O Riain, the lead architect of the award winning work "Architecture Factory" said: “The Architecture Factory is a third level architectural education, learning and research space situated in a disused split-level warehouse in Cork, Ireland. The interior architectural intervention adapts used shipping containers into lecturer offices dividing the ground floor space into 7 open plan studios. These are divided from a new mezzanine structure by a wide boulevard which functions as a live lab, exhibition and making space. The mezzanine cantilevers over this space creating online learning facilities above seminar rooms, storage, photo labs and studios bookending the enclosures.” To learn more, visit: http://www.adesignaward.com/design.php?ID=34013.
