Dún Dealgan N.S.
We recently completed a full restoration and four classroom extension to Dún Dealgan National School. Located in the busy town centre of Dundalk, and the sensitive surroundings of four listed builings, this extension required careful consideration of the environment around it. The new extension sits to the rear of the site, taking colour inspiration from the listed buildings which surround it. Internally, we created a tense foyer where old and new meet, leading off to a multi purpose hall within the original school house. A restoration of its double sliding doors allows division of this space when needed. After almost six years in the pipeline, we’re delighted to hand this building over to the educators at Dun Dealgan N.S.
