The Foy Centre

Carlingford Community Development

Carlingford, Co. Louth

The brief was to provide a multi-resource facility which would address the multiplicity of community needs outlined by our clients. The building therefore includes a sports hall, changing rooms, toilets, hostel-type accommodation, administrative offices, meeting/multi-function rooms, storage and a cafeteria.

The site is located within the grounds of the village primary school with the school’s football pitch being retained.

Several design solutions were explored before the final version was agreed upon. The building is also future-proofed to allow a future first floor extension.
