This extension to an existing school resolves the problem of the non-existence of direct internal communication between individual classrooms and the general purpose/dining room, which resulted in students having to either walk through other classrooms or to leave the building in order to access the GP room. Combined with an increase in student numbers, the inclement weather conditions traditionally associated with the west coast of Ireland made this situation unacceptable. The extension was paid for out of monies remaining from other grants received by the school, the building was completed in six weeks, and for less than half the cost of a standard educational extension. The newly obtained 35sqm, as well as serving as a circulation link between rooms, has also been adopted as an art workshop and as a ‘hang-out’ space for students, due to its high level of natural light and sense of spaciousness.
