FaulknerBrowns Architects were commissioned by the Institute of Technology at Carlow to develop a masterplan to allow them to develop new facilities to help retain and attract high quality students and academic staff.

A cornerstone of this masterplan was the provision of the highest quality learning resource facilities combined with a new central services facility. Situated at the heart of the campus, the new 6,400m2 learning resource centre provides a fully-integrated facility incorporating traditional learning resources such as printed volumes together with digital media such as internet, CD ROM and DVD facilities. A total of 475 reader spaces are interspersed with 340 open access IT stations centred around a dramatic lightwell, providing opportunities for students to learn and work individually or in groups.
