ST. MICHAEL'S ESTATE
As part of a joint venture team, McCauley Daye O’Connell won this competition to design and develop the 10-acre mixed-use scheme in Dublin 8. A combination of retail units, community spaces and private & social housing have been arranged around a lively circulation spine linking the town centre with the LUAS station. Informal private courtyards and urban public plazas are interspersed throughout and combine to give a strong community identity.
Main focus of this re-development was to bring immediate benefits to the existing community. Key concepts were created around establishing and re-inforcing connections within the community by placing key facilities at the heart of the neighbourhood. Celebrating historic connections in a forward-thinking and contemporary way. Reflecting and linking connections in the existing context and reinforcing routes and paths to embed the scheme in it’s site.
