Balbriggan Sports Centre


Dublin and Dún Laoghaire Education and Training Board

Project Type

New Sports Centre


Balbriggan, Co. Dublin

Project Value

€2 million

The centre replaces a smaller sports hall and includes a full size basketball court, climbing wall, gym, changing rooms, and meeting rooms. The Sports Centre serves Balbriggan Community College and the wider Balbriggan Community.

The building is broken down into increasingly small volumes, from basketball court to entrance hall, allowing the large building to sit more sympathetically in the scale of its residential surroundings. The grey and blue patterned facade of the basketball court reflects the sky, further lessening the building's bulk.

Completed 2016.
