Built in the early 20th century, this existing residential care building on the Clonskeagh Hospital Campus was developed under a major works programme as part of a change of use to a Mental Health Unit.  With a brief to deliver a modern healthcare building, OBFA designed the refurbishment and additional extensions to maximise the quality of daylight within the building while maintaining the privacy of patients. The building was designed with a series of courtyards to provide a progression of privacy from external to internal.
