The building I decided to use for my dissertation project was an office unit in Carrick on Shannon, Attirory, County Leitrim. I felt that the open space that surrounded the buildings would compliment my building's use of a patient hotel. I liked the modern look of the office units and thought the space was a reasonable size to re-design. The units are located close to Carrick on Shannon, a very popular and picturesque town that offers fantastic services and amenities to any interested parties.
The aim of the design project was to transform the contemporary office building at Attirory, Carrick on Shannon, Leitrim, into a relaxing patient/rehabilitation hotel, while providing accommodation and care for guests. The goal is to provide a comfortable place for guests to stay while waiting for care at the medical centre or needing outpatient care. Provide a safe area away from home where people can continue to recover throughout the recovery process. It will allow patients to heal in a relaxing atmosphere rather than the clinical healthcare environments they are used to in hospitals, while ensuring that they are secure in knowing that healthcare specialists are available on request. Staying here and recovering will be a great experience for guests, as will the possibility for family members to remain with them.
