Griffith Wood creates a new integrated residential community within an established inner Dublin suburb of Marino. The integration occurs through the provision of a public open space, at the heart of the lands.

The residential buildings cascade with terraced gardens and spaces and define the character of these spaces through their scale, massing, and architectural language. These slender ‘finger blocks’ are brick forms within a lush landscape which work as a backdrop to the main stage of the lavish setting of planting, shrubs, and mature trees. The result is a residential development, organised around a new public park and historic buildings, within the Marino community. This animated, supervised, public space links Griffith Avenue, through an open threshold and permeable layout, to the Marino Institute lands beyond.
