Student Accommodation Common Areas
Brickworks is a Student Accommodation in Dublin. The site lies in a historial area where the community used to worked in a variety factories such as distilleries and textile production.
Upcircle took inspiration on those spaces that had specific features such as cement floor, metallic features and structures, and big open spaces. The area is also well known for whiskey distilleries, that is an important historic fact about the development and the city, as an identity character.
Another inspiration for this project was the name - Brickworks - and the architecture of the building, which defined the main colour and texture of the project - terracotta.
