Transitional Homes

The two storey corner building is located in an architectural conservation area and replaced a similar building in poor condition which was unsuitable for renovation. The brief seeks to balance independent living with a sense of community among tenants. The placement of the door and windows on the elevation suggest a single home rather than an apartment block. Each of the four 20 m2 apartments has substantial built in storage, wet room bathrooms and compact kitchens. The plywood ceilings conceal heat recovery ventilation units in each apartment. The new modest meeting room measuring 2.7m x 5.5m is entered through a separate private passageway which also provides security to ground floor bedrooms. The long sides of the room are lit by a translucent sliding translucent door screen to the passageway side and a rooflight on the opposite side. The exposed oak ceiling and end walls combine with the light terrazzo floor to create the sense of a spacious room.

Bailte Idirthréimhseacha

Cuireadh an foirgneamh cúinne dhá stór seo, atá suite i limistéar caomhantais ailtireachta, in áit foirgneamh a bhí cosúil leis a raibh drochbhail air agus nach raibh feiliúnach d’athchóiriú. Déantar iarracht sa choimre seo maireachtáil neamhspleách a chothromú le braistint phobail i measc tionóntaí. Cuireann lonnú an dorais agus na bhfuinneog ar an aghaidh chló in iúl gur teach aonair seachas bloc árasáin atá i gceist. Tá stóras ionsuite substaintiúil, leithris seomra fliuch agus dlúthchistineacha i ngach ceann de na ceathair árasán 20m². Clúdaíonn síleálacha sraithadhmaid aonaid aeraithe um aisghabháil teasa i ngach árasán. Téitear isteach sa seomra cruinnithe beag nua 2.7m x 5.5m trí phasáiste ar leith a chuireann slándáil ar fáil do na seomraí leapa ar urlár na talún. Cuireann doras sleamhnáin tréshoilseach chuig an bpasáiste agus díonsolas ar an taobh eile solas ar fáil feadh thaobhanna an tseomra. Tagann an tsíleál agus na ballaí deiridh dharacha nochtaithe leis an urlár éadrom terrazzo chun seomra fairsing a chruthú.
