Smyths Toy Store
Location: Co. Cork, Ireland
Architect: Joseph Doyle Architects
The work on the store was phased in order to allow the client to continue trading as there was no quiet period available for a shut down
Face Glass 15mm & 12mm TUF HST, Roof Glass 17.5mm TUF HST Laminate
Wallglass 316 Stainless steel fittings included bolts, fitting castings, horizontal cigar shaped tension trusses with vertical dropper rods including vertical cross bracing & glazing channel.
The frame at the front wall was designed to accommodate the lateral loads from the glazed wall and roof without taking away from the architectural affect. The front of the building was removed as part of this project and replaced with a glazed wall to maximise the daylight penetration into the building and provide a brighter aspect on to the narrow street.
