A residential urban development located in the centre of Dublin, on Portland Street (close to the famous Croke Park Stadium)
This is definitely on of the most interesting residential development I have been involved in .
There are three blocks, comprising about 130 apartments, some of them duplexes, with a very narrow atriums beetween them an many balconies sticking out of the building, cladded with timber .
The three buildings create courtyards, new streets, that are of a very good quality and friendly for the inhabitants.
Striking combination of materials and quality of finishes makes me proud , and I very often draw some ideas from this design.
Presented buildings are liners with decks runing along the length of the buildings, the entrances to the apartments form a courtyard and with the external lifts linking the decks at the ends of the buildings.
The apartments are still available to purchase , for about 250 thousands euro – I think they are worth it.
