Blackrock Further Education Institute (BFEI) will feature as one of the buildings in this year’s Open House Dublin. You can tour this beautiful building, which combines the restoration of the original Blackrock Town Hall, the old Blackrock Carnegie Library and the then Dún Laoghaire VEC School, and the new construction of what is now BFEI.
The protected part of the structures from the 1860s and early 1900s and have been sympathetically preserved and integrated into a modern new centre of education. The major interventions of the extension – a courtyard and glazed atrium – are used to focus light onto the new social spaces for college students. The development also includes the refurbished Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council’s Blackrock Library.
