David Flannery is a Director of Scott Tallon Walker Architects. Following extensive experience in Dublin’s docklands regeneration, he established the Cork office of STW in 2004 and has gone on to demonstrate the urban design and tourism potential of Cork Harbour, one of the world’s largest natural harbours, through the masterplanning of both Cobh Waterfront and Spike Island, a former military fortification at its centre. As well as large-scale dockland projects and campus design for some of the city’s major employers, he demonstrates the ability to design thoroughly modern buildings which respect and activate their context within the historic city core. He is currently spearheading the masterplan for the regeneration of a former 18th century brewery built on the original medieval Hiberno Viking settlement of the city, into a vibrant mixed-use precinct of student residences, employment, cultural and entertainment buildings that will also deliver a wealth of new public realm such as two new pedestrian bridges, a new public riverside quay, reinstated medieval laneways, a new public square and the eagerly anticipated Cork Events Centre, all within the main meander of the south channel of the River Lee. David is an active academician since 2014.
