PROJECTS: Educational - Sligo

Institute of Technology, Sligo

The project brings together new computing technological and engineering laboratories and the existing technology centre which together constitutes the new School of Engineering. The total area of the new facility is 4,460m2 . The design is generated by factors of location and energy strategy, a sensitive situation in the overall master plan places great emphasis on the importance of a central public street. Sunlight penetration is deployed to enlighten to the street works in tandem with a minimal mechanical wastage strategy in the form of strongly sculpted roof retorts. Their three dimensional forms provide a strong and memorable identity.
