Residential Schemes | Affordable Housing, Balbutcher

Address:                     Ballymun, Dublin 11
Date of Project:         2019
Client:                        Ó Cualann Cohousing Alliance
Project Size:               37 Affordable Houses on 1.747acres

This proposal relates to the construction of 37 Cooperative Affordable Homes on Balbutcher Lane, Ballymun by Ó Cualann Cohousing Alliance CLG. (Ó Cualann) with support from Dublin City Council (DCC).

The units are arranged in six two storey blocks, the roofs of these blocks are generally pitched away from the external perimeter, giving a strong contemporary form to the street edge whilst keeping the inner perimeter as low as possible to maximise light into the private open spaces.

Each unit is associated with a colour from a muted palette and this will be used on the background of each unit number and on occasional projecting window surrounds. This featured colour will allow for residents, especially children, to identify with their home, it will also enliven the burgeoning streetscape.
