New Student Campus and Residences for Students in Dublin

November 21st, 2014

In Q3 we were pleased to be appointed to provide signage for two prestigious projects in Dublin.

Grangegorman Education Campus saw its first students arriving on campus in September, after more that 10 years in the planning.  Having met with the college and design team, to facilitate change the internal sign system of choice is the MG Quin paperflex sign.

Ziggurat Student Living, Montrose Student Residence, which is beside the UCD campus, will target third level and graduate students from third level colleges across the city, as well as international language students during the summer months.

We were pleased to work with DTA Architects and Walls Construction in providing signage for the Student Residences at the Montrose.

Here a simple colour code scheme was used to orientate the students which extended into the colour code of the interior. This is particularly effective in lift lobbies and helps with orientation in multi storey buildings. Another important consideration was Braille and tactile text to meet with accessibility standards.

In busy spaces such as this, it is important to ensure that signs stand out and are easily found.  Size and placement are important as is the contrast between the panel colour and text and the background wall. The use of symbols transcends language barriers and works well for those with visually impairment.
