Pelletstown is a dense, tightly formed urban quarter, adjacent to the Royal Canal, Rathborne Village and the Tolka Valley Park. The project intensifies the conventional suburban housing model, referring to enduring historical red brick Dublin neighbourhoods through its use of terraced housing, compact streets and pocket parks.
Royal Canal Crescent is formed by three terraces of duplexes, bookended by apartments, all of which benefit from view over the Crescent Park. The laneways between the three terraces lead to a network of homezones and pocket parks, all defined by terraced housing. Buff brick is used throughout the scheme, providing a warm & unifying materiality, with white brick and stone used to emphasise entrances and key elements.
