School of Art and Design


The aim of this project was to examine and convert an existing building into an innovative school of art and design, located in Dublin City. My overall concept derived from the buildings existing architectural design features seen on the glass façade. Focusing on the geometric formations, I then began to experiment using light, glass and colour. The result of my conceptual design is formed from the use of a laser travelling through glass with geometric facets. I wanted to create an environment that allowed students to thrive mentally and encourage creativity. To do this I wanted to create a bright open interior with pops of colour and numerous interactive spaces.
