Christian Brothers College Cork

A proposed New School House will add eight classrooms, a library, canteen and multipurpose hall to Christian Brother College, maintaining existing student numbers and supporting existing teaching facilities. New indoor and outdoor social spaces will improve the student experience. A series of terraces and gardens with stepped routes between link the new and existing buildings and take advantage of the site’s elevated setting and city views.

    The design approach is to enhance the landscape of the campus improving existing facilities and adding new facilities to respond to a developing curriculum. The main aims are to:

    • Consolidate the campus like qualities of the site, linking existing and new structures and amenity space with accessible and enjoyable routes. The campus is conceived as a single learning environment.

    • Provide some order to the carparking facilities on the site, confining parking to the designated parking areas, allowing the main avenue to become a landscaped access route through the site.

    • Improve the legibility and use of existing buildings

    • Provide a series of new outdoor covered and uncovered spaces for students to gather and interact in.

    • To add a series of informal social spaces to promote cross-learning and collaboration

    • To minimise environmental impact with the use of robust high-quality materials, creating a high performing building with minimal energy demand

    • To provide a source of renewable energy for the college.

    • To introduce new improved teaching and learning facilities on a complex site in a manner that enhances the streetscape, respecting the scale and nature of the neighbouring buildings.
