New Road Apartments

Creating a new road to the future – Given that living in Ireland is ever changing and homelessness is becoming more prevalent. I have chosen to redesign a purpose built secondary school located in Clondalkin, Dublin into emergency apartment accommodation for those who require a roof over their heads, somewhere they can call their own and support to move forward. The concept for the design was inspired by the textures, angles and construction of the building as the architecture created unique and exciting forms and shapes which I have incorporated throughout my design. The apartments are designed to be compact but spacious and multifunctional when required. This is seen in the general purpose areas of a space such as the kitchen, dining, living and bedroom.
