Dublin 8, Inchicore - Hope Montessori & Autism Care Centre

Considering environments for children contributes to learning. Our interior design introduces the use of strong colours, each colour defining the tone of each learning space in the Hope Montessori and Autism Care Centre, Inchicore, Dublin 8. The interchanging coloured shaped windows from each room creates a flow and a unique sense of play and allows for an abundance of natural light.

Designing Life


Creches & Childcare Space Design

Ceardean Architects have earned comprehensive experience working on both existing and new creches in Dublin, Cork and Limerick amongst other areas.

We work closely with creche owners in order to achieve the highest standard of child-friendly spaces for children to learn and grow, and ensure all buildings are appropriately designed and equipped to meet statutory obligations such as fire safety, disability access and all planning requirements.

We have worked on various creche fire safety certificate applications and familiar with requirements as set down by the Child and Family Agency, Tusla.

You can review a very helpful guide on some specific planning and fire safety requirements as defined by Tusla HERE

The design of spaces to care for young children is something that is very close our hearts here in Ceardean and we warmly welcome any current of prospective creche owners to speak with us directly about any issues you face.
