New Standalone Permanent Extension.


Blessington, Co. Wicklow.

Project Value

€230,000.00 Part of the Replacement Rental Prefab Scheme

This standalone addition consists of 3 classrooms and toilet block. It’s placement on the site ensured that there would be no impact on the existing play space or reduction to light in the existing classrooms. The building can be easily expanded in the future.

The design intent was to create a contemporary interpretation of the language of the existing school building. The classrooms are accessed via a light filled hallway and benefit from dual aspect windows.

Completed in 2013 on time and within budget.
