Irish Building & Design Awards – Architectural Project of the Year Award Winner 2017

The Lidl Ireland Head Office was designed to consolidate Dublin administration staff with the rapidly expanding Lidl retail store network. Located close to major road and light rail networks, the location facilitates staff travelling to Dublin Lidl stores, as well as providing easy links to Dublin Airport for visitors from Lidl International Head Office in Germany.

The 8,000m² building rises 4 storeys above a basement level carpark, with an impressive thermally insulated glazed façade and central atrium open to office floors rising up through the building.

The design team worked with the client to create a workspace designed to accommodate Lidl New Ways of Working, which is being rolled out as the group rapidly expands its presence in Ireland. As well as providing corporate presence and meeting room spaces, the building also houses the Lidl Test Kitchen for evaluating the preparation and presentation of retail food products, and Media Areas for in-house creation and collaboration on Lidl public relations flyers and magazines.
