Boarding School & Music Department, Rathdown School, Glenageary.

Project Price: 3.4m

Project Area: 1500sqm

Contracting Authority: Rathdown School

Project Year: 2004

The project was to provide a new music department and boarding school extension to the existing facilities of Rathdown School, an all girl boarding & day school for 500 pupils. The objective of the project was to facilitate as many bedrooms onto a restricted site whilst maximising views and orientating communal rooms to take advantage of light at their time of use. The plan is generated from the constraints of the existing site with the Music facilities located lower on the building section to reduce noise pollution and accommodation located in areas maximising the quality of light and the views available.
