Reddy Architecture + Urbanism has won the ‘Project of the Year: Healthcare’ category at the Fit Out Awards 2017. Congratulations to our de-sign team, which brought together our expertise in healthcare and interior design.

Ferndene, an addition to an existing nursing home, comprises 29 bedrooms and new dining and lounge areas. It creates the ambience of home rather than an institution, with natural colours, good daylight and extensive views to the outside.

Our client’s comment:  “Reddy Architecture... created a superb scheme for our nursing home... contemporary and luxurious...
a scheme that is unique when benchmarked against other nursing home and healthcare facilities in Ireland.”

We are very pleased to have received from An Bord Pleanala planning permission for phases 1 and 2 of our student housing scheme at University College Dublin’s Belfield Campus. This is the first such permission to be granted nationally under the government’s new Strategic Housing Development (SHD) process, designed to accelerate delivery of large-scale strategic housing schemes.

The development will ultimately provide 3,000 bedspaces in seven buildings of between five and ten storeys arranged around courtyards and linked by pedestrian walkways integrating the new buildings with the existing residences and academic buildings on campus. Activity hubs are located at key nodes, providing amenity and study space for residents and creating a living campus community.

The project is due to start in early 2018 with the first phase due for completion in early 2020.

Our conversion of the former Dominican church in Athy to a new municipal library has reached completion.

The original building is formed of a striking hyperbolic parabolic curved roof with significant elements of stained glass artwork. The design concept was to preserve the original spatial and light qualities of the former church, whilst upgrading it to provide a modern library. The transformation of the building will give it a new lease of life as a public building.
