Designed by Heneghan Peng Architects, The Giant’s Causeway lies in Northern Ireland’s Causeway Coast World Heritage Site, a landscape of cliffs formed by hexagonal basalt stones, agricultural landscapes and cliffside walks.

‘There is no longer a building and landscape but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic.’

Design id – “Our work on the Giant’s Causeway Visitor’s Centre is just one example of how our creative skills have been used to design post-tensioned stone (thermally broken) mullions, a method rarely used before in Britain or Ireland. Some of the slender mullions are only 150mm wide and span up to 6m, consisting of approximately 20 individual stone pieces. We worked closely with the stone contractor, S McConnell and Sons to develop a structural solution for this very bespoke project.”
