John Hume Building, National University of Ireland, Maynooth


The building is the main focus of the master plan for the University. It provides a new four-storey central teaching facility for a number of faculties including the Department of Psychology and acts as the main research base for the University.

From the outset, the design team set themselves the challenge of designing a building which would be fully naturally vented and make as much use of passive ventilation, heating and lighting as possible. This would result in lower running costs for the university and substantially reduced CO2 emissions.
