Client: Blackrock College

Status: Competition

Value: Private

Project Description:

The accommodation is grouped into three areas for teaching, changing and activity. These areas are connected by a glazed link which also forms the entrance to the building. The traditional box volume of the sports hall has been broken by a glazed insertion between the roof and the walls. The roof over sails these walls and is folded down to create the south facing façade. Light enters the volume through this insertion and is reflected and diffused to provide a bright, evenly lit, uplifting environment.
