87 Dwellings, Associated External Works and Site Development, Ireland

87 Dwellings, Associated External Works and Site Development

The works involve construction of 87 dwellings, new public highway with footpaths, parking areas, private and public landscaping.

The northern half of the site is laid out with seven three storey U-shaped buildings, each comprising nine apartments. These are arranged around private, south-facing courtyards facing the new internal road. The three-storey scale is appropriate to Santry Avenue and also relates to the Phase 3 and to the Phase 1 apartments by Gilroy McMahon Architects. Parking is provided for the apartments in landscaped areas to the side of each building. Terraces of two storey houses with rear gardens are lined the southern half of the site and backed onto the existing Coultry houses. Each terrace is also arranged in a U-shape corresponding to the apartment building opposite. This plan enhances the scale of the long estate road positioned over the services. All apartments have ‘own door’ access and generous south or west facing terraces the large ground floor apartments have private gardens.
