Honoured as Winner of 2017 Irish Council of Social Housing Awards Homeless Category, the Focus Ireland C.J. Falconer & Associates Designed Greenmount Close, consisted of the construction of a sheltered residential development including 28 residential units.
The development included a mixture of apartment and housing units, with terrace construction (varying in height from 3 storeys to 2 storeys) fronting Harold’s Cross Road, and two storey terrace units to the remainder of the site, in this Dublin City Centre location.
All accommodation was arranged around a central landscaped shared garden / private open space – while the development also included the delivery of 16 no. car parking spaces, and all ancillary accommodation and associated site works at Our Ladys Hospice.
The development creates a safe neighbourhood of homes for the elderly, and less-abled, within the greater Dublin City area.
The project has featured in the January/February 2018 Special ‘Housing Issue’ edition of Architecture Ireland (the Journal of the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland) – which looks at innovation, design, and solutions for Housing / Housing Crisis.
