WDA worked as the Project Architect for Ireland House, the new home of the Consulate General of Ireland, San Francisco and two other Irish state agencies, Enterprise Ireland and Tourism Ireland. The project involved the tenant improvement of an entire 9,755 sq. ft. floor in downtown San Francisco. WDA’s architectural design was driven by the concept of a “Shared Hearth” which forms a focal, unifying element within the scheme. Along with the daily work of the State agencies, the scheme also includes a Representational Space which, for the first time in California, provides a dedicated place for the Consulate to host events which foster trade, innovation and celebrate Irish culture.
