The new Convention Centre Dublin (CCD) is a new and inspiring way of conceiving a space for conferences and cultural events.
The building, located on the Spencer Dock, features a cutting-edge design based on a stunning glass cylinder that skewers the building from top to bottom, emerging to form a spectacular glass atrium.
The interior space provides panoramic views of the River Liffey and the Wicklow mountains. The building also has a lift system that offers visitors an impressive experience as they look out through the transparent structure.
The CCD, with a 2000-seat auditorium and 4500 square metres of exhibition space, is recognized as the world’s first carbon neutral convention centre and meets the highest standards of environmental sustainability. In the selection of construction processes and materials, the focus was on choosing the most ecological alternatives available.
When configuring the auditorium, the challenge was to deliver the multi-functionality needed to accommodate the diverse range of events that will take place at the centre. The CCD?s programme makes it essential that the space can be quickly adapted to any type of event, from a corporate convention to a world-class concert. Chairs and tables can be quickly removed to create a raised stage for an orchestra, and just as easily put back where they belong when the performance is over. The generously dimensioned Megaseat used for this installation features a fire barrier and an acoustic absorption system that optimizes acoustics for crystal-clear sound. Combined with the F-45 foldaway work table, it is the perfect solution for conferences and lengthy sessions.
