Congratulations to everyone involved in the Clancy Quay project, which received a prestigious Highly Commended Certificate in the RIAI Silver Medal for Housing 2015-2017 competition, at the Housing Conference this month. An exemplar of international best practice, the project was commended for its successful integration of contemporary buildings with historic building fabric, excellent public realm and sustainable density. We also enjoyed John O’Mahony's presentation on Density at the conference, which focused on delivery models and housing typologies, using plentiful case studies on appropriate densities from Ireland and Europe.
