CCM have been working with St Patrick's College Silverstream for a number of years on a wide range of projects including the seismic upgrade of their historic buildings, new conference facilities and refurbished dormitories.
We were delighted to be asked to submit a scheme for an invited design competition for St Pat's new gymnasium and aquatic centre.
Our design response looked at how this new development would fit into the wider campus, and responded to the context and existing natural features. Robust, low maintenance materials were selected, and forms were intended to complement the existing building forms and details.
