The Tripod


The aim of this project was to source a suitable building and transform it into an up market pod style hostel. The building that I chose is 33-34 Sir John Rogerson’s Quay in Dublin City. Features of the surrounding architecture are mirrored within the interior. An open plan layout has been used throughout all floors of the design giving the hostel a spacious feel. The pod form has been incorporated into not only the sleeping areas but also the library, dining and lounge areas. Each sleeping pod is private and has acoustic materials throughout which will add to the privacy and comfort of its guests. These characteristics are essential for this type of accommodation.
