A prominently located site on the Luas Red Line and Grand Canal in Inchicore, this proposal is for an eight storey landmark apartment building with ground floor retail.
The complex site addresses a number of local contextual issues with smaller scale terraced housing as the predominant building typology. The site also backs on to the Camac River, dropping steeply down to its edge.
The new building is a slanted, snaking form that has a stepped, repeated pattern along its main South façade, with deep reveals and recessed balconies. The predominant material used is light coloured brick, with a standing seam metal roof clearly visible, emphasising the building form as one approaches from Inchicore Road.
