SOS, Nuncio Rd. Kilkenny / Residential Architecture, Fire Engineering and PSDP


Construction of sheltered residential complex for persons with special needs. This is located on a tight city site but close to another SOS unit which allows for improved supervision. Two units are of own-door access and there are also 5 no. two bedroom apartment units and one staff/communal unit. All have a different unique layout, design and colour scheme. Living spaces overlook the communal courtyard and garden which has been sensitively planted. The bay windows from the the apartments allow for a sunny aspect. High quality finishes were used throughout the units allowing for a building. A high BER rating was achieved using gas central heating and solar panel energy for pre-heating water.
