location Dublin
function education, re-use
contributed by McCulloughMulvin

The site - in a seaside town close to Dublin - incorporates the former Town Hall, Carnegie Library and Technical College, a tripartite composition of historic buildings from 1860 and 1905. A new L-shaped addition completes the implicit urban block - generating, between new and old buildings, two planimetrically equivalent but spatially distinct courtyards - one glazed, one open. These courtyards provide orientation points throughout: one "sea" based, its floor screenprinted with a photo of shells at low tide, the other "mountain" based - a fern garden open to the sky.
