A key project objective was to create a community space within an already established locality. The site is located on a prominent location adjoining the local football green & pitches and mature established housing. In addition a priority of South Dublin County Council was to add much needed single bed housing to the area.

The living areas and kitchens are turned into the courtyard creating a secure external space for the residents to enjoy.  OBFA delivered this scheme using a selected material palate of brick and a planted landscaped engaging courtyard space with built finishes, that were not expressing an institutional feel, but of a continuation of the suburban language of the locality.
