Students from Coláiste Choilm Ballincollig spent February and March developing their architecture projects in workshops with Seán Antóin Ó Muirí.
After lots of preparatory work and some inspiring tours of Cork’s finest architecture and cultural centres, they all worked on individual design projects.
Their designs are based on ideas for a personal room in the back garden of a suburban house.

Architect Seán Antóin Ó Muirí was encouraged by the students’ flair for design and the standard of their work throughout the project:  “The standard of the conceptual thinking in some of the projects was extremely high, similar to what you would expect at university level. Overall, I hope the whole project was a good introduction to what architecture is and hopefully the experience may be of some use to them in the coming years.”

We’re also really impressed here at the IAF!
