Croke Villas

This scheme for Dublin City Council comprises 72 units in houses and apartments. It will be in tune with modern aspirations for inclusive city living, and will be built to current high standards of sustainability, to better-than-modern space standards set out by the Department of Environment, and with an appropriate site density, all of which will create a community among its new residents.

The project is to be delivered in two phases - the first is to redevelop the sites of derelict houses on one side of the street to create 11 new three-bedroom houses with their own front doors and street frontage. Phase 2 will comprise the development of 61 apartments in two L-shaped blocks with a courtyard garden between them, and underground car and bicycle parking. They form a new set of relationships and streets which effectively re-imagine the entire site of the former Croke Villas flats.

This long neglected area will now become a new urban neighbourhood with its own internal dynamic, with a high quality public realm, newly defined street edges, a defined carriageway for vehicles on the new Boulevard, landscaped streets and gardens, and safe playing space for children.
