Doolin Coastguard Station nominated for RIAI award

The new coastguard station in Doolin has been shortlisted for the RIAI (Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland) Public Choice Architecture Award. The station was designed by two award winning architecture practices Dominic Stevens Architects and Dorman Architects and has been operational since Easter.
