Dublin Dental Hospital

Dublin - a city of individual houses - should have a roof-scape of terraces, apartments and viewing platforms. In this project, five contiguous protected structures are converted to new uses for Dublin Dental School and Hospital, combining conservation with strong modern intervention into the fabric. 

The houses - a piece of city, archaeology and typology combined - are upgraded, using voids and fireplaces for services, retaining doors and surfaces. The rooftop is transformed by the addition of zinc 'pods' containing a new library; light-well 'stalks' are dropped through the fabric, forming niches and spaces around a corridor intervention linking the houses laterally.
