HEINEKEN HQ, CORK
Following on from creating new Heineken offices in Dublin, MDO were asked to look at the refurbishment of the Malt House. This involved a full assessment of the building from both a workplace strategy and conservation viewpoint.
The building had numerous floors with low ceiling heights used originally for spreading out corn for malting. MDO built a full BIM model, showing where there was poor flow through the building and whole floors were underutilised. This resulted in the radical proposal to remove an entire floor. It created a dramatic double height office between the first and second floors in the central section of the building.
