College Gate Davey & Smith Architects www.davey-smith.com

The brief called for an extension that would allow for a light filled generous living space on a restricted and narrow site. The rear and side wall have been broken through to connect the existing and new areas of the accommodation. The roof extends creating an overhang which provides shelter and shade to the south as well as accommodating an outdoor storage area.

CLONTARF ROAD Davey & Smith Architects www.davey-smith.com

An existing sea front property in Clontarf took little advantage of its location and orientation. The brief required a complete refurbishment and a new rear extension to accommodate the client’s expanding family. In order to decrease the impact of such a large extension the additional volume was divided into its component parts and advantageously stepped according to function, light and orientation.

Sandyford Cafe Davey & Smith Architects www.davey-smith.com

The brief required a suitable layout redesign to an existing cafe unit. Due to the restricted size and shape of the cafe the counter was designed to be as compact and efficient as possible. For aesthetics and economy the cafe was finished using a palette of simple materials; reclaimed oak boards for the counter and fixed seating, timber laminate flooring and the units bare walls decorated with recycled shelving units.

Fitzwilliam Square Architecture Republic www.architecture-republic.com

It was proposed that two adjoining Georgian houses on Fitzwilliam Square, currently used as offices, be restored and converted into a series of 8 residential apartments. The main concerns were providing disabled access as well as creating adequate exterior areas throughout the development. These issues were resolved by the addition of a lift serving both buildings as well as the provision of communal winter gardens and a roof terrace while retaining as many of the original features of the buildings as possible.

Shelbourne House Architecture Republic www.architecture-republic.com

The proposal consisted of a two storey rear extension to accommodate a new enlarged kitchen/dining area with a generously proportioned master bedroom and dressing suite. Interior planting beneath a large linear skylight in the new kitchen/ dining effectively links the interior and exterior spaces. The ground floor living areas were reconfigured to provide more intimate family spaces while maintaining a connection to the new extension.

RIAI School Competition Architecture Republic www.architecture-republic.com

A strict programmatic layout and budget resulted in a two storey complex with the accommodation arranged in section; the classrooms on the first floor where it is quietest and well lit and the more specific parts of the brief located on the ground floor. The building is punctured by a series of top-lit courtyards and atria each with different proportions and character providing multiple opportunities for social interaction.

Seville Apartments Eddea Arquitectos www.eddea.es

The design of new urban housing block for 2,000 inhabitants called for the reinterpretation of the traditional Sevillian apartment block. Four separate residential towers, arranged around a raised platform, were designed to stand at varying heights according to orientation to ensure adequate light and shading. The apartments are interspersed with triple height balcony areas creating vertical social spaces for interaction between the residents.

Dance School, Dublin Thesis Project Tutors: Mary Laheen & Aoibheann Ni Mhearain

My intention for this thesis project was to examine how the movement and trajectory of a body through space can create areas of connectivity, changing perspectives and fluidity of motion. I chose a derelict city centre site adjacent to NCAD and between two socially disconnected areas of the city, the social housing of the Oliver Bond Street apartments and the long established Dublin community of the Liberties. A public realm of movement and connectivity on the ground level retains visual connections with the private realm of dancers above. The programme is organised to encourage movement onto and through the site. Semi public spaces nestle between the road facing public functions forming the central part of the new campus which is arranged around a new public square.

Inn For Cashel Fifth Year Project Tutor: Peter Cody

The historically significant town of Cashel required accomodation to encourage tourists to prolong their visit. Focusing on four of the prominent historical sites in Cashel I orientated the building to take full advantage of these views. The high towers of the sleeping quarters reference old tower houses while creating connections to these sites. The groundscape of the inn is thought of as landscape in itself. A continuation of the landscape of Cashel. This organic experience of route and journey lies in contrast to the strict geometric forms of the accomodation above. This groundscape extends across the site moving seemlessly from exterior to interior. Interior spaces house the communal functions of dining, living and exhibition. The tall towers above create intimate private spaces directing occupants views across the town and standing as a beacon to the weary traveller.

Public House, Dublin Fourth Year Project Tutor: Tom de Paor

The site for this building is in the medieval heart of Dublin. From examining historical maps of the area I became intrigued by the network of lanes and alleyways which ran through the urban fabric. These were spaces where people met and social interaction occurred. I decided to recreate these across the site with the public house between them. I was interested in creating a journey of sensations through my building design. The effect of moving through these high walled alleyways stood in contrast to moving through the spacious areas of the building. Access to the “alleyways� was from staircases internalised in the thickness of the structure. By moving across the depth of the plan the light constantly changes, from the light in the alleyways to the shadows of the interior spaces. The change of height, level and spaces of the building were further enhanced by the change of concrete aggregate.
