Dublin – Very interesting place to live in, especially in the end of the last decade .
I was one of those lucky ones to live there for a few years and experience the unbelievable possibilities of having big money invested in building process.
Very often buildings were constructed of very good quality, and well finished materials, also you could notice an interesting trend in architecture and design generally to use materials of natural origin, more often then it was happening in previous years.
The presented building is a preliminary school located in Dublin, on Ranelagh Street .
It is kept in a small , very human scale and one can feel a freshness of ideas and a friendly enviroment very the priority to the designer.
Thanks to the use of natural materials, timber framed windows and doors, timber cladding, natural stone, smothed and polished concrete panels, lead flashings and roof coverings make the building looking contemporary and give it a very noble character.
The attention to details and thoughtfull and fresh use of composition , calls for a special appreciation.
