Design Theory

The Mini Project Ideology.

In the mini project I converted 4 apartmens in Dolphin's Barn social housing complex in Dublin into a living unit for 4 troubled youths and a live-in supervisor. The troubled teenagers in my brief suffered from learning/concentration problems due to experiences growing up. They have fallen behind in school and are acting out getting themselves into trouble because of this.

My ideology was to create a safe, positive and inspiring learning environment in this apartment. My design was inspired by mountains. I wasted the design to help the youth grow and learn and inspire them to reach for something. I wanted the teenagers to feel safe and inspired to learn in the apartment I designed for them.

  1. Correction: I wrote "wasted the design to help.." when I actually meant "wanted the design to help..."
