DFG Architects were appointed to design an extension to St Brigid's National School, Grange, Tullow, Co. Carlow to provide an extension to the existing school building.
The extension to the school consists of 4 x Mainstream Classrooms plus two Resource rooms.
Works to the school consisted of an extension to the existing school comprising four mainstream classrooms and two resource rooms together with associated toilet facilities and related alterations to existing school buildings and widening existing southern vehicular entrance also included planning for future development which included a sports hall including gym/fitness suite and other ancillary accommodation and connection to existing school buildings, together with additional car parking.
The extension has been designed in a contemporary fashion. Materials proposed were rendered walls to a later colour selection to provide a simple elevation to the classroom block. The roof consists of a flat roof with parapets along with a mono pitch roof with clearstory windows over the main classrooms.
