This project involved the construction of a single storey Day Care and Respite centre within the confines of a protected walled garden in the grounds of the Daughters of Charity Convent in Blackrock. The new building houses a bedroom wing, catering and resource areas, offices and training centre.
The brick and stone walls surrounding the Daughters of Charitys’ orchard garden is a protected structure. In the course of building works, these walls were maintained and protected while a small amount of rebuilding work was carried out at project completion to facilitate the pedestrian entrance.
