CASTLE PARK, DALKEY
MDO’s proposal for 101 residential apartments at Castle Park, Dalkey creates a high quality, attractive, sustainable neighbourhood which blends public and private amenities.
By occupying less than 30% of the site area, the design minimizes the scheme’s impact on the existing woodland. Embracing modern advancements in off-site construction, the design is composed entirely of components that can be manufactured and assembled off-site, creating a more reliable, sustainable, cost-efficient construction process.
The building form and footprint adopts a sensitive approach, respecting its woodland surroundings. Occupying the footprint of an existing surface car park, the building weaves through an existing large grove of woodland trees, with green roofs and fluid balcony forms reflecting the rolling natural landscape.
