A building steeped in history on the northside of the city has been shortlisted as one Ireland’s favourite buildings.

The recent fit out of Cork Butter Museum, designed by DATUM Architecture Studio and Stephen Foley Architects, has been shortlisted in the public choice vote of the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) annual awards.

The Cork Butter Museum is based in Shandon and documents the history of butter production and sale in Cork. It is housed in the former Cork Butter Market. There are 33 projects on this year’s shortlist, all of which were designed by RIAI-registered architects and which were completed in 2019.

The buildings are located in Cork as well as Dublin, Galway, Louth and Tyrone, London and France.

Ciaran O’Connor, RIAI President, said: “Each of these projects is unique and addresses a particular set of challenges and opportunities. The jury looks for projects that have produced a creative, intelligent, innovative and quality design response to the brief. The shortlist includes 33 projects from 129 entries and the range of projects demonstrates the important contribution that architecture makes to positively affect all areas of our lives.”

Online voting is now open and all of the projects are available to view on the RIAI website at riai.ie. Voting closes at midnight on 3 July.
