The refurbishment and extension of St. Audoens Park, commissioned by Dublin City Council, is the first significant public realm project in medieval Dublin for at least four decades.The design proposal was developed to address a wide range of issues in the wider area such as a deficit of public open space, poor access, poor awareness and perception of the open space and a serious element of anti-social behavior including significant drug use. An emphasis was placed on the history of the site and particular attention was paid to the approach to St. Audoens Church, which dates from the twelfth century, as well as the integration of the church Visitor Centre (managed by the Office of Public Works) with the park and the role that the medieval City Walls play in terms of the use and enjoyment of the park.
