  3. 3. My thesis exploration began with reflection on my own working life in response to the theme of the year ‘working life’. The thesis was born out of an interest in carpentry informed by my experience of working with timber. It examines material honesty in modern architecture and the apparent disconnection between how something is designed and how something is made. It demonstrates my belief that a buildings character should be derived from creative tectonic expression and not a pre-conceived notion of form. The public element of the project includes a community hall/ private workshop space. The structure of this space is informed by tectonic principles of ship­-building, (alluding to Waterford’s historic tradition of ship-building), and seeks to resemble an inverted hull. The private aspects of the project include three artisan workshops and a larger Etsy workshop. This larger workshop uses a timber joinery system devoid of nails, screws or glue. The research allowed me to investigate particular timber details through large scale models. 1:1 Model- beam/column connection 1:1 Model- ridge connection Detailed section of main hall View from Ballybricken Square

The street was once lined with Georgian terraces which were almost entirely knocked down in the 1960’s. They were replaced with poorly designed social housing typical of 1960’s Dublin. My design attempts to reconcile the memory of the old Georgian imprint with the demands of modern housing. The front facade seeks to provide a hard edge to the city through an inhabited wall of bricks. This inhabi- tation takes the form of a balcony and a niche seating space for the bedrooms. The living area face south and include flexible timber shutters for shading and privacy. Private gardens at ground floor level provide a threshold between the apartment and street. 4th year, semester 2- Dominic Street Housing Location: Dominic Street, Dublin Typology: public and private residential housing

  9. 9. Front Elevation 1st floor internal view Library exterior showing public square For this project we were asked to design a new city library for Dublin. The site is on Dorset street in the North Inner City with one side facing a busy street consisting of 3-4 storey apartments, and the other, a quiet residential street. My proposal responds to the scale of the context by situating the main reading room on the busy street and the quieter elements of the brief to the back. 1st floor exhibition spaces provide the main lighting source for the library and create thresholds between the various sectors of the building. The entrance for the library takes the form of an ‘internal street’ which seperates the more private aspects of the library from the main public hall. This central reading room creates a large volume for communal gathering while surrounding, smaller volumes create more intimate, personal reading spaces. The external cladding is inspired by the study of the near-by 18th century black church. The project also sees the creation of a new public square.
  10. 10. Existing view- Ilac Shopping Centre Exisiting view Parnell Square For this project, we asked to examine the area around Parnell Square through the lens of the picturesque and the descriptive. The first part of the project involved selecting views from around the north inner city and proposing how that view could be be visually improved through architectural proposals. The second part of the project involved making an intervention in the area. For my proposal, I examined the private space of the Ilac Shopping Centre and proposed how it could be re-imagined as a public street. My proposal involved the introduction of residential units and the removal of the shopping centre roof. I imagined that the market area of the adjacent Moore Street could now extend to this new public realm. 4th year, semester 1- The Picturesque and the Descriptive Location: Parnell Square area, Dublin Proposed view Parnell Square

  12. 12. 3rd year dissertation, semester 2- Dublin Migration Museum Museum exterior The brief and for this project was to design a piece of architecture of a certain size along a major tourist route in Dublin. I decided to design a Migration Museum to acknowledge the citys history of emmigration. The museum is developed along the ideals of an introverted journey suggestive of the disorientation of migration. The building user follows a carefully considered circulation route along an interactive wall through the building before entering into a large research room. I created a route along the old city wall in-between 2 separate blocks. A plinth running around the building establishes a common datum and helps link the two blocks visually. The stone-clad walls of the exhibition space are raised from the plinth and supported by set back columns. These blank walls are a response to the massive, singular nature of the existing city wall.

  13. 13. 3rd year, semester 1- Dublin City Hall offices Dublin City Hall offices model The Dublin City Hall project involved designing a new city hall and square for Dublin. My design attempts to repair the street while also providing a sheltered public square. This square encourages pedestrian movement between Dame Lane and Dame Street. The ground floor is activated by an open public gallery, with steps facing the existing Dublin City Hall leading up to the offices above. Location: Dame Street, Dublin Typology: offices/gallery
  14. 14. 3rd year, semester 1- Fabriano town hall study During a class trip to northern Italy, we visited the towns of Gubbio, Fabriano, Todi and Perugia. The Medieval town halls and associated squares of these towns are unique to only two places in the world. During our visit, we surveyed and researched the town halls and the squares. I was involved in collecting accurate information for the square in Fabriano. Upon returning to college a small group of us made a 1:100 model of the square. The model was then photographed in a photography workshop. Location: Fabriano, Marche, Italy
  15. 15. 3rd year, semester 1- Rome town hall Model without upper square/roof View from Lucano Manaro street Town hall central room The brief for this project was to design a town hall, public square and offices. The site was in Trastevere, Rome on an awkward site which sloped dramatically from one side to the other. In this project I have created a terraced square which acts as a backdrop to Luciano Manara, the main street linking Trastevere back to the city. A zig-zagging ramp nestles into the natural slope of the land and links the upper and lower levels of the site. A second square on the upper level allows views over the city. The various elements of the town hall engage in different scales. The grand scale doorway of the entrance contrasts with the human scale of the seated auxilary spaces. Location: Trastevere, Rome Typology: offices/community hall Section through square
  16. 16. 2nd year, semester 2- Bray Pavilion project The brief for this project was to design a pavilion with a stage, cafe and changing rooms. The site is situated at the southern edge of Bray Wanderer’s football grounds. With this project I attempted to create an experience of ceremony and anticipation for the supporters as they made their way to their seats. I identified an unused platform at the top of the main stand and linked it to a pre-game gathering area at ground level by creating a ramp. As the ramp rises, the various functions of the stadium like the changing rooms and turn-styles are placed underneath it. The cafe and stage help separate the ramp from the pitch and allow for a controlled glimpse into the ground as the supporter makes his/her way up the ramp.
