Victoria Square


“In Belfast we helped to alter international perceptions and unify a divided city. Kick starting the renaissance of Belfast was a privilege. This regeneration project won 15 prestigious design awards for its pioneering concept. At the inauguration ceremony Northern Ireland’s First Minister, Ian Paisley, declared “Victoria Square is the first tangible asset of the peace process.” A memorable evening for all who attended.
