This proposal seeks to find a balance between developing the site at a sustainable density, while retaining its’ sylvan character and respecting the pattern and character of development in the area.

This 5.17 hectare site is partially located within the designated Foxrock Architectural Conservation Area, and is neighboured by the vast expanse of Leopardstown Race Course. 

The larger detached dwellings within the proposed scheme line the winding avenue into the site, and mark the start of a transition from the lower densities on Brighton Road to a medium density within the body of the site. The clustering of houses between the existing trees minimizes the impact of the building footprints on the site, without compromising the sylvan character of the lands, creating a beautiful housing development within a wooded landscape.
