Campus Restaurant, Maynooth University

This new University Restaurant has transformed the west side of the North Campus of Maynooth University. It provides a total of 630 dining spaces and is set adjoining the existing Sports Centre forming a delightful and popular south facing external court. Together with the building this has become a social hub for the campus. The accommodation includes three different restaurant areas: 450 seat restaurant, 80 seat cafe and 100 seat coffee shop. A private dining room, full catering kitchen, satellite kitchen and private offices are also provided. The design has created a light and airy space which was achieved by extensive use of high efficient glazing optimising daylight, reducing the use of artificial light and minimising summer heat gains. All areas enjoy views to the fully developed landscape.
