OASIS Project, Omagh
Bandshell Canopy Structure
As part of a £4.5million regeneration scheme in County Omagh, Northern Ireland, Fabric Architecture worked with FP McCann and McAdam Design to provide a 10m “Bandshell” from their Signature Structure range.
It is a bright, modern, recreational space including outdoor gym and games equipment and a bandstand, with a pedestrian and cycle bridge linking to the town centre through Old Market Place.
The OASIS project is a catalyst in transforming the local community by taking a previously segregated and inaccessible area on the banks of the River Strule and turning it into a vibrant public realm plaza, available to all and with a multitude of uses.
Fabric Architecture’s Bandshell is the focal point of the scheme, forming an iconic covered performance and stage area. With its 30+ year life expectancy the structure meets all the criteria for long-term sustainability as set out in the project objectives.
The Chairman of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council officially launched the Omagh Accessible Shared Inclusive Space (OASIS) project on Wednesday 17 June.
