Carr Cotter & Naessens
Based in Cork, Ireland since September 2001, Carr Cotter & Naessens are an architectural practice with projects ranging in size from private houses to major urban developments. Attention to detail and commitment to excellence are combined to form a rigorous approach to high-quality architecture, which underpins all the work of the office.
Caro Communications are currently employed to promote their latest project, The new Dún Laoghaire Rathdown Library and Cultural Centre. This building is the result of an RIAI two stage international competition and Carr Cotter & Naessens Architects were selected for their generous offer of new community facilities and a new public space at the heart of the town. Set to open its doors to the public in December, the library is oriented around a central ‘living room’, which is bathed in natural light from a large glazed facade that faces the harbour as well as overhead skylights running the length of the buildings.
