UCD Nova Innovation Centre - East Quadrangle by Stephen Moylan


We are presently designing the East Quadrangle phase of NovaUCD at Merville House. This follows our work on the earlier phases of Nova at Merville House in 2002-2006.

Merville House is a remarkable building which resonates strongly a unique sense of place. This feeds positively into the entrepreneurial culture of University College Dublin Nova.

The East Quadrangle will complement Nova Innovation Centre at Merville House and further increases the visibility of this key university activity which promotes innovation from within academia.

UCD Belfield Illumination Project by Stephen Moylan


The celebration of the 150th anniversary of the founding of UCD included the illumination of public areas and buildings within the Belfield Campus, and we were delighted to be involved with the project.
In conjunction with Pritchard Themis Lighting Design and White Young Green, the night-time appearance of the campus has been transformed. The lakeside, water tower and more than a dozen of the campus's buildings have been illuminated in dramatic fashion.

Sustainability at Kavanagh Tuite by Stephen Moylan

At Kavanagh Tuite we emphasis that the process of 'green design' is the basis of all good architectural design, not an optional add-on. Sustainability is a huge part of our work.

Achieving the requisite standard requires committed integration of the whole design team from the very beginning, but it has to be architect-led from the position of informed professional knowledge, commitment and responsibility.

GPO Witness History Interpretive Centre by Stephen Moylan

This is a culturally significant project in one of Dublin's most iconic buildings on the city’s main thoroughfare, O’Connell Street. It was opened to the public last year for the 2016 centenary of the 1916 Rising. 

The high profile project involved the construction of a new exhibition centre within the restored courtyard of the GPO. The public engagement with the iconic GPO has been hugely enhanced with the opening of the new interpretive centre. We are proud to have been involved in this significant project.

UCD Nova by Brian Kavanagh

We have been appointed by UCD to design the third phase of the UCD Nova Innovation Centre at the Belfield campus.

Centred about the 18th century Merville House, we have previously completed the first two phases of UCD Nova and the current phase will extend to the East Quadrangle.

Capstones Shift: 1916 Centenary Lecture Series by Stephen Moylan

Along with Stephen Ferguson, Assistant Secretary of An Post, Brian Kavanagh, Fergal Ryan and Joy Kearns, of Kavanagh Tuite Architects, were invited to speak at RIAI for its Capstone Shift lecture series. 

'To mark the Centenary of 1916, the Irish Architectural Archive (IAA), the RIAI and its journal Architecture Ireland have developed a joint programme of lectures and articles entitled ‘Capstones Shift: Architectural Legacies of the Easter Rising’ which run throughout 2016. The lectures are accompanied by a series of articles in Architecture Ireland and focus on a selection of prominent Dublin buildings destroyed or utterly changed by the events of Easter 1916 and later. These buildings were central to myriad social, commercial, political and religious patterns of life. Their absence, or removal from use, would have had an immediate and disconcerting effect on the daily routines and interactions of thousands of ordinary Dubliners as they lived, moved, worked, prayed and entertained themselves in the post-Rising city, quotidian disruptions making unavoidable and un-ignorable the profound political phase-shift that had occurred.'

(RIAI/news/article/Capstone Shift)

Brian and Fergal gave a fascinating and insightful lecture about the process of restoring the East courtyard to its former glory, the importance of craftsmanship involved within the conservation of such an complex landmark building, and the challenges met and overcome with the construction of the GPO Witness History, the new contemporary exhibition centre, that twines itself within the fabric and history of one of Dublin's most iconic buildings.
