Designing buildings for physically impaired people is a conceptual leap for everyone involved, as building regulations tighten a lot of the concepts from such schemes find their way into general architectural practice.

I am interested by the snippet on Irish-Architecture news about the Dunlop & Murray scheme in Scotland.

Any chance of a few extra images?

Sent a package of drawings to Paul, Diaspora but to be honest the files are huge , it's maybe unlikely that they can be posted direct.

So attached is the page from glasgowarchitecture.com, which has images and a brief history of the project
http://www.glasgowarchitecture.co.uk/dumbreck_school.htm

The 52 kids who will be attending the school have every type of physical and sensory impairment, really and every variation of sight problem.

Thanks for that Alan & Paul,

They are good images and it is a great scheme, unfortunately most architecture for the disabled in Ireland tends to be functional and they like everyone else deserve to be inspired by architecture and the wider built environment.
