Killarney Arts Centre

Killarney Cultural Centre RefurbishmentThe refurbishment of the Cultural Centre as the Killarney Arts Centre is a project that considers not just the building space, but the complete area surrounding it, as a space available for a wide variety of Arts related activities. The aim is to make the new Arts Centre a flexible and adaptable space both internally and externally. The front façade is being redesigned with a metal structure with black cladding which reflects the trees at the back of the auditorium area. The outdoor area, covered with a retractable canopy, will be a flexible area that will seat an audience which can view a show on the internal stage or on an external stage. A paved area and a number of landscaped areas are also proposed. The canopy structure is supported by poles which are a schematic interpretation of trees and will also be used to support public lighting for the adjacent pedestrian footpath.

The design concept of this proposal is to create a flexible and contemporary space which can host an arts centre and also re-create a modern interpretation of the Killarney National Park in the Town Centre.
