Ireland is one of the most touristic spots in the world. Every year the number of tourists who visit Ireland is higher than its own population. In the maze of Medieval, Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian architecture, one typology that stands out is castles of Ireland. In a wish to reveal Ireland the project reflects several influences of that typology. To develop the spot as a touristic attraction the office building is extended beyond the site. The park adjacent to the building incorporates amphitheater, food courts, floating decks, and boating facilities. The public area is expanded into the building, incorporating a museum and a restaurant.
