IRFU HQ

The power of design can transform an organisation. With that in mind, for my thesis project I proposed to design the first Irish Rugby Football Union Headquarters that incorporates the administrative arms of the organisation along with a state of the art training facility. By researching behind the scenes of the IRFU’s current set up I was able to custom design spaces that suited the organisations exact needs for both the staff and players to excel. The design concept derived from the rugby ball itself. It enabled me to create interesting structures and forms within the building.
