Pascall+Watson’s design for the restoration of Trinity College Dublin’s (TCD) historic Rubrics building, has been granted planning permission by Dublin City Council.
The sensitive refurbishment and deep energy retrofit of the 321-year old building, for its continued use as residential accommodation for staff and students, will make it one of the oldest examples of university accommodation buildings in Ireland.
The scheme, which also includes research and communal spaces for the University’s fellows, will bring the historical campus building back into full use, whilst providing the highest standard of contemporary facilities to broaden the appeal of the university’s offer.
Rubrics is the oldest surviving building on the TCD city centre campus, and is listed as a Protected Structure and Recorded Monument.
The development adds to our continued success within the education sector. Recent projects include the new student accommodation and Film & Media Centre at the University for the Creative Arts, the engineering building redevelopment at Queen Mary University of London and the new Dyson School of Design Engineering at Imperial College London.
