A Vision For A Children's Centre
On Friday the 5th November 2010 in Fumbally Square, Dublin 8, Aoibhneas officially announced the winner and runners up of an architectural competition to design a state of the art specialist ‘children’s centre’.
Three entries where short listed from 102 submissions. Aoibhneas would like to extend congratulations to the winners:
• Burke Culligan Deegan Architects
and runners up:
• Clancy Moore Architects
• Ignacio Vidal/Victor Pujol Architects in association with Cullen Payne Architects
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the RIAI for their assistance in organising the architectural competition, to the Dublin Airport Authority for their support in providing their technical expertise which was invaluable, to the jury for their specialist input, and to Candy Murphy for on-going support and her research carried out ‘Developing World class services for Children Affected by Domestic Violence Living in Refuges’, 2008.
This specialist ‘children’s centre’ would only be a mere thought if it were not for the visionary insight and determination of the Chairwoman, Terri Morrissey, who believes that children need to be a focus point in the prevention of the cycle of violence in family life and reclaim their childhood. This venture was supported and encouraged by the Board of Management and staff of Aoibhneas in the hope that the vision for a specialist ‘children’s centre’ will become a reality in the future which will enable Aoibhneas Women and Children’s Refuge to further expand on supporting children through their experience of domestic violence.
We have officially announced the ‘Aoibhneas Children’s Centre Building Appeal’ to fund the building of this wonderful specialist children’s centre, which will cost in the region of €1 million. Donate Here >>
