The New Life for Old Buildings webinar is for anyone interested in the process of bringing a vacant property back into use. This webinar is a rare opportunity to hear from three property owners who are engaged in this process, as well as hear about some of the practical supports available to you.
This event is part of the New Life for Old Buildings project, which organised a series of site visits to renovation projects in Dún Laoghaire, Cloughjordan, and Limerick city. The New Life for Old Buildings site visit series was aimed at sharing knowledge among those who are bringing vacant properties back into use. Each site visit was hosted by a property owner who is undertaking their own project and gave those who attended a chance to swap tips, woes (and joys!), and learn from each other. The webinar brings these renovator-hosts together to share their experiences and provide insight into the challenges, learnings and benefits such projects bring.
Established in 2005, the Irish Architecture Foundation (IAF) is an independent organisation dedicated to the promotion of architecture as culture. We encourage people to engage with their built environment, to inspire new ways of thinking about architecture.
We truly believe architecture has the power to improve the way we live and how we think about our built environment. By bringing people together from diverse backgrounds and disciplines, we can create a more inclusive conversation that will inspire a better-built environment for everyone.
