COADY Architects, in association with Perkins+Will, were appointed as Interior Architect for Interior Design and Fit-Out services to reconfigure and refresh the One Microsoft Court (OMC) building. COADY provided services from inception through to completion, preparing all tender documentation and overseeing the delivery on site.
The existing office building comprises 9,823 sqm office space over 3 floors providing 700 workstations. The key project driver was to raise the OMC office experience in line with the new building at ’One Microsoft Place’ and enable it to better accommodate an increasing headcount of the Dublin business.
To ensure that the look and feel to spaces holistically represents Microsoft, the design has followed the Microsoft Design Guidelines which set out the principles, components, and defining characteristics that create their distinctive visual and brand language. All stages of the design have been reviewed by the Microsoft appointed brand and interior monitoring architects in line with established procedures for design review.
The project won Fit-out Project of the Year Overall and Fit Project of the Year in the Large Office category at the Fit-out Awards 2020.
”The One Microsoft Court Project has been an amazing achievement that had a high bar of success, with the primary being to deliver a One Microsoft Campus. The transformation of a 20 year old end of life building into a alive and engaging environment has been transformational. The best thing is as we have employees returning to OMC, who have worked in the building for year they are astonished at what has been achieved so thank you to the entire team for the great delivery.Jeff SchumacherMicrosoft Real Estate & Security Regional Lead Microsoft Corporation
