Myrtle Square

Myrtle Square is situated in the heart of Dun Laoghaire town, south Dublin. This project saw a dramatic redistribution of public realm space in favour of pedestrians and as a destination space. The goal of this project was to create a landmark for the centre of the town, creating a communal area in the process.
