The linear site, measuring 0.5 acres, occupies a prominent location on Fitzwilliam Quay, overlooking the River Dodder in Dublin. The scheme is comprised of three components: a long linear block which runs along the northern site boundary, and two bookend pieces, which adjoin the gables of the neighbouring development to the south. 55 residential units and a small retail unit/café are provided.
A visual connection between the quayside and the courtyard within the scheme adds interest along the river frontage, offering a glimpse of the scheme within to the passer-by. The configuration also allows the scheme to ‘borrow’ the garden of the adjoining scheme to the south, and opens up views to the bay and mountains in the distance.
