Participants were challenged in the The Irish Cult Music Venue Competition with envisioning the renovation of a music venue located in Leap, a village in County Cork Ireland. With a rich music culture, this site builds on the Connolly’s of Leap venue which is located on a steep hill next to a ravine and waterfall. The existing site contains a music venue building, family quarters, and a collection of outbuildings used for storage.
All projects were tasked with re-thinking the site to offer a unique setting for musical performance through refurbishing the existing venue, and by expanding the site to include programs such as an external performance, a bar, a cafe or restaurant, external seating area, a recording lab, management offices, a creative workshop and studio spaces etc.
