Heron Wood, Cabinteely

The scheme is conceived as a contemporary addition to the architectural landscape designed in a vernacular language that allows it to take its place in the village. The form is carefully modulated to manage the scale.The buildings along the road frontages in the scheme are mainly three storeys high and have a series of slightly raised rooflights above this providing a rhythm at the upper level. The buildings are made of brick in a light colour, with the volumes scaled using a stairs between every second unit to allow for breaking up of the volume, a series of recessed balconies reinforce this rhythm and activates the streetscape. The openings in the walls are simple and combine with the recessed balconies to give a structure and rhythm to the elevations.

The two apartment buildings comprise three storeys (ground floor apartment units with duplexes over) along the perimeter of the site. There is an articulation at the corner to allow views through at ground level to the courtyard. A terrace of three storey houses, in a similar style, takes up the third side of the scheme, their living spaces facing back towards the park in the distance. A densely planted courtyard garden is formed by the scheme. This will feel like a ‘green’ place to live while at the same time having excellent connectivity and local amenities.
