DMOD partnered with California based practice Moore Ruble Yudell and the success of a collaborative competition entry and the now completed Public Realm phase of the project is a product of a very successful 7-year partnership.
The competition brief was to generate a Master Plan document for the 73-acre site, formally St Brendan’s hospital in Broadstone, for a new DIT third level Campus. The attributes of the site including multiple access points, level changes and views out, have been optimized to create an approach which gives priority to “people” movement across the site and placemaking. The latter refers to “public and amenity spaces” captured between new and existing buildings, where the existing have been the subject of considered conservation works and adaptive reuse. Our interest lies in producing an architecture, which optimizes the potential held in the combination of these parameters.
