This is the latest phase in the extension of the public realm improvements to all parts of Waterford’s historic city centre. As well as the repaving of some of the City’s most important streets, the works include the redesign the Applemarket. A steel canopy structure provides a covered area for public gatherings and street performance, as well as supporting glazed coverings to the surrounding streets. The canopy has a reflective surface which adds drama to street life reflecting the life of the citizens below. The palette of materials used on the ground includes the same pink granite and grey limestone as used in previous regeneration projects in the City.
